Overview

Leading hybrid with a combination of big yield potential, good agronomics and good drydown.

  • Widely adapted, high-yielding hybrid with very good yield stability.
  • Consistent semi-determinate ear provides yield stability across different soil types and management practices at medium-high to high plant densities.
  • Strong disease package with good tolerance to eyespot, northern corn leaf blight and Goss's wilt.
  • Strong stalks and excellent roots for poorly drained soils.

Management Guidelines

  • Consistent semi-determinate ears support moderate to high plant densities.
  • Strong emergence and early vigor for all reduced tillage applications.
  • Good choice for continuous corn and corn/soybean rotations.
  • Widely adapted across soil types and environments with variable fertility and stress levels.
  • Good tolerance to Goss's wilt, northern corn leaf blight and eyespot supports wide east-to-west adaptation.
  • Very good choice for early planting and delayed harvest.
  • For optimum performance, position within 97- to 102-day maturity range; avoid moving north out of area of adaptation.
