Management Guidelines

  • Avoid planting in areas of high pressure to northern corn leaf blight and goss's wilt.
  • Provides ear flex to support moderate plant densities.
  • Good stalk quality and late-season intactness allow for the opportunity of late harvest.
  • Best performance when kept within the 76- to 80-day maturity range. Avoid moving south of zone.
