Management Guidelines

  • Position on highly productive soils for best performance advantage.
  • Consistency will maintain yield advantages across variable soil types.
  • Very good root strength makes it a strong choice for poorly drained soils.
  • Strong grain finish in the fall allows for good northern movement.
  • Excellent plant health and late-season intactness allows for delayed harvest.
