Management Guidelines

  • Best performance at medium to high plant populations.
  • Very good emergence and early vigor for early planting and reduced tillage applications.
  • Good choice for continuous corn and corn/soybean rotations.
  • Avoid sandy soils, except where irrigation is an option.
  • Shows a strong response to fungicide use in heavy northern corn leaf blight environments.
  • Fast drydown and superior finish offers great northern adaptation.
  • Good east-to-west adaptation with good northern movement.
  • Best performance when kept within the maturity range of 97 to 101 days.
  • Very good tolerance to Goss's wilt.
