Management Guidelines

  • Mycogen® brand bm3 BMR hybrids are bred for highly digestible stover and grain components; a planned fertility program that provides adequate N, P and K throughout the season is highly recommended.
  • Best performance when placed on soils with good water-supplying capacity, unless irrigation is an option.
  • Avoid planting at aggressively high plant densities; moderate to moderate-high plant densities complement the performance characteristics.
  • Use of a foliar fungicide is highly recommended when significant leaf disease pressure is expected.
  • Avoid planting in fields that have very poor drainage properties.
  • Monitor harvest moisture closely as harvest approaches; hybrids may be drier or wetter than physical appearance indicates.
  • When storing BMR hybrids in a pile or a bunker, recommended moisture levels for harvesting range from 66 percent to 70 percent; for bags, 66 percent to 68 percent.
  • Consider the use of a foliar fungicide when planting corn after corn or in fields with a history of leaf blight problems.
