KEY STRENGTHS
Strong hybrid that excels in the Delta. Jumps out of the ground ahead of competitors
and never looks back. Excellent test weight can be bumped with intensive fertility
management.

WEAKNESSES
Stalk anthracnose and gray leaf spot tolerance are average.

MANAGEMENT TIPS
This hybrid loves the Delta region but could be used outside of it, as well. It is highly
responsive to fungicide application in-furrow and from V10 through the R stages.
It also responds well to intensive fertility management. Be confident planting this
one first in average to above average soils. Avoid the poor ground. H6422 is the VT
Double PRO® RIB Complete® version of this hybrid and has even more yield potential
if protected.
