Management Guidelines

  • Semi-flex ear type supports variable plant densities; optimum performance achieved at moderate to moderate-high plant populations.
  • Good choice for continuous corn and corn/soybean rotations.
  • Do not plant under stressful emergence conditions such as extended periods of cold, wet soils.
  • Avoid areas with high Goss's wilt pressure.
