SmartStax® hybrid with complete insect protection package for continuous silage acres. Strong performance contributes to quality silage. Good Northern Corn Leaf Blight resistance and agronomics. Performing well north and south. Leader product where insect protection is needed on corn rotation acres.
LIMITATIONS: Fast growth, heavy draw on nutrients. In poor drainage situations evaluate nitrogen supply, side-dress nitrogen if denitrification occurs.
MANAGEMENT: SmartStax® recommended for continuous corn acres. Excellent in high residue conditions.
Strong, versatile single trait RR product with extremely wide adaptation. Performing nicely north / south and handling foliar blights while maintaining silage and grain yield. More ear flex than most hybrids of the maturity. SW 3854RR flowers early for good northern silage performance.
LIMITATIONS: No trait insect protection.
MANAGEMENT: Versatile, all uses, adds genetic diversity while fitting most rotation needs – performed in high residue conditions. Structured refuge option.
Single trait RR for any dual purpose or silage acre in first or second year corn. Solid disease package including Stalk and Foliar Anthracnose resistance. Good agronomics with medium plus stature and strong ear flex for maximum population flexibility. Effective across soils and management. Late season finisher.
LIMITATIONS: No GMO insect trait protection.
MANAGEMENT: Solid where ear flex is an advantage. Tolerates medium to high populations. Structured refuge option.
Bluechip research performance in silage trials when compared with SW 3904LRR, (above), in side by side comparisons over three years. SW 3914LRR is available only as single trait RR. It has slightly more yield from a girthier ear than SW 3904LRR. Improved ear package/husk cover. Must try silage hybrid.
LIMITATIONS: Like other large stature Leafys can run out of nutrients when nutrient supply is inadequate for high silage yield levels.
MANAGEMENT: Longer grain fill window than SW 3904LRR which makes it easier to manage at silage harvest time. Structured refuge option.
Medium yield potential with elevated silage digestibility. Non-GMO brown midrib bm3 gene. Exceptional roots and good bmr agronomics for a truly early brown midrib hybrid. Consistently superb silage digestibility with elevated animal intake potential.
LIMITATIONS: Like all bmrs loses staygreen late season.
MANAGEMENT: Medium stature requires high populations.
SW 3970 3111 New!
Exceptionally wide adaptation where the maturity is grown, including the Mid-South. Medium to short plant height in the south, with height increasing in the north, especially with later northern planting. Keep populations on the higher side for silage.
LIMITATIONS: Medium Stature
MANAGEMENT: Silage yields best as heavier populations.
Strong conventional grain and silage yielder for all environments. Medium plus stature, good roots, adequate agronomics. Strong on Northern Corn Leaf Blight for consistent wide acre performance. Maintains yield potential as populations increase. Very attractive upright leaf for high planting density.
LIMITATIONS: No trait insect protection.
MANAGEMENT: Strongest performance in first and second year corn. Position where there is a NCLB history. Structured refuge option
SW 4000GENSS (RIB) New!
SmartStax® RIB Complete® for broad acre use in longer corn rotations with good performance in zone and north of zone. Long rotation silage choice.
LIMITATIONS: Moderate Western Bean Cutworm protection.
MANAGEMENT: Widely adapted to variable soil types.
Proven high yield grain hybrid with good roll over silage performance for any acre in the maturity. Complete insect package with rootworm protection on corn after corn silage acres. Widely adapted north to south with deep kernel. Silage yields improve with higher populations.
LIMITATIONS: Medium robust plant for silage.
MANAGEMENT: Keep populations on the higher side for best silage yield on pre-planned silage acres.
FLOURY hybrid with improved grain / stover digestibility for improved animal performance. High while plant silage yield potential. Moves north of zone with wider harvest window than modern grain hybrisds that dry quickly. SW 4020LRR is easier to manage for best forage quality.
LIMITATIONS: Moderate root strength. Choose other hybrids for extremely light soils such as sands and muck.
MANAGEMENT: Use only for dedicated silage acres – SW 4020LRR will not be suitable for grain or high moisture ear corn. Structured refuge option.
Agrisure® 3000GT hybrid replacing former mainstay SW 3869 3000GT for grain and silage. SW 4029 3000GT has demonstrated more total yield and better yield consistency across environments than its predecessor. Wide acre hybrid with economical corn borer and rootworm protection.
LIMITATIONS: Moderate stature in silage applications.
MANAGEMENT: Keep silage specific acres planted at higher populations to capture full silage yield potential.
