SW 6540GENVT2P (RIB) New!
New yield champion in testing, both high yield and variable locations. Combines yield, agronomics with health to work in-zone and south. Go to hybrid for genetic Anthracnose Stalk Rot and Gray Leaf Spot Resistance.
LIMITATIONS: No rootworm protection.
MANAGEMENT: Above average with fungicide on corn after corn acres.
Exceptional grain yield potential. Proven performers in wide area of adaptation. Moves south better than SW 5430, the established product in the maturity. High and consistent grain performance including the mid-south.
LIMITATIONS: Low populations could limit yield potential. The LibertyLink™ option is only available for the SW 5440GENSS RIB option. Not the SW 5440GENVT2P RIB option.
MANAGEMENT: Plant populations should be on the high side for the soil resource and managed for high yield.
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, silage and support use for grain.
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 options.
Versatile SmartStax® hybrid with consistent yield and performance on more stress prone soils. Nice appearance late season with solid agronomics making a complete package. Good choice for variable soils, though it should not be limited to these sites.
LIMITATIONS: “Fungicide protection may provide additional boost in performance in corn after corn rotations, especially in the Mid-Atlantic, southward.
MANAGEMENT Nice finishing hybrid for maturity. Monitor grain moistures to prevent harvest losses as moistures can dip below optimum harvest ranges.
