E390L & 3904LRR
Leafy hybrid with the widest adaptation to northern silage acres we have ever seen. These hybrids combine grain yield, and silage quality into one package for any first or second year corn acre. Add grain mold, native first generation corn borer, and North Corn Leaf Blight resistance.
LIMITATIONS: Average Gray Leaf Spot resistance. SW E390L is not glyphosate tolerant.
MANAGEMENT: Use in first and second year corn for maximum yield and forage quality. Solid in reduced tillage. Structured refuge options.
SW 1990GT & 1994GT
Conventional and single trait glyphosate versions of this short season winner across Northern zones where good plant and ear size fit dual purpose acres. Maintains stature across variable conditions. Population flexible. Good early vigor, fast drydown, good starch and oil content for high quality feed on farm.
Limitations: Adequate roots for general use. Roots may not be adequate for muck soils.
Management: Use for short maturity, strong emergence, high grain yield in maturity and ability to produce across variable soil types.
Leafy hybrid with total yield and quality package in the early maturity for silage. Extremely high grain yield in grain trials which indicates favorable grain/stover relationship. Favorable ﬁber digestibility with elevated grain digestibility, conﬁrmed by in vitro laboratory testing.
LIMITATIONS: No trait rootworm protection for long term continuous corn silage acres.
MANAGEMENT: Supply nutrients for high silage yield. This Leafy, like all Leafy hybrids, is indeterminate in growth and will continue to get taller after ﬂowering, during the grain ﬁll period. This means late season nutrient supply to canopy and ear is going on at the same time. Nutrient supply in the second half of the season supports increased silage yield and quality.
SW 3110GENSS (RIB) & SW 3110 GENVT2P (RIB)
Solid silage yield potential with SmartStax® and VT Double Pro® options on same base genetics. SmartStax® RIB Complete for broad acre use in longer corn rotations, and Double Pro for first and second-year corn. Very good stand establishment and early vigor for early planting and reduced tillage.
LIMITATIONS: The LibertyLink® option is only available for the SW 3110GENSS RIB option. Not the SW 3110GENVT2P RIB option.
MANAGEMENT: Maximize silage yield with higher populations.
SW 3569 3110 & SW 3569 5222
High yield, stable yielding silage hybrid with Viptera® 3110 and Duracade® 5222 options. Holds plant size well across environments. SW 3569 3110 best fits first and second-year corn, and SW 3569 5222 is best for second-year corn and longer corn rotations. Highly productive grain and silage.
LIMITATIONS: SW 3569 3110 no rootworm protection.
MANAGEMENT: Use on any acre.
SW 3600GENSS (RIB)
Exceptional consistency of performance for grain and silage. Rootworm and corn borer protected for continuous corn silage acres. One of the most versatile SmartStax® hybrids we have seen across eastern and northern environments. Holds plant size well across varying soils.
LIMITATIONS: Average Gray Leaf Spot resistance.
MANAGEMENT: Use on long term corn silage acres where corn after corn requires trait insect protection. Good for the reduced tillage acre.
Single trait Roundup with excellent north / south adaptation for easy placement. Versatile across soil types and harvest methods. Excellent consistency of performance over locations and years. Nice grain or silage fit on Roundup acres.
MANAGEMENT: Best fit on first and second year corn acres.
SW 3640 & SW 3654RR
High yielding conventional and single trait glyphosate tolerant hybrids for maximum silage yield and quality. Solid disease package. Good agronomics with medium tall stature and strong ear flex make these hybrids effective across soil types and management.
LIMITATIONS: No GMO insect trait protection.
MANAGEMENT: Good where ear flex and high grain & stover digestibility are important. Versatile and management flexible. Structured refuge options.
Extremely productive dual purpose hybrid for grain and silage with grain drydown. Holds plant size well across environments with ear ﬂex seldom seen in the maturity. Nice snapper and husker with ear ﬂex to accommodate a wide range of populations. Elite dual purpose hybrid for HMC, snaplage, and silage.
LIMITATIONS: No GMO insect trait protection – rootworm protection unsuitable for long corn rotations.
MANAGEMENT: Exceptional choice where ear ﬂex is an advantage. Recommend medium to high populations in high fertility environments. Structured refuge option.
