Overview

Exciting combination of high yield, strong agronomics and versatility to perform on a wide variety of acres.

  • Solid stalks and roots support aggressive plant densities.
  • Yield stability derived from consistent ear development under variable conditions.
  • Good defensive characteristics, including strong ear retention.
  • Very good fall health and plant intactness supports delayed harvest.
  • Very strong emergence and early vigor.

Management Guidelines

  • Position for good yield environments with good levels of fertility.
  • Strong emergence and early vigor for all reduced tillage applications.
  • Moderate to high plant populations recommended to optimize yield performance.
  • Average tolerance to eyespot and northern corn leaf blight.
  • Avoid areas with high Goss's wilt pressure.
  • Strong candidate for delayed harvest.
  • Responds well to high nitrogen levels.
