Big grain yield potential with solid eastern U.S. adaption. SmartStax® RIB Complete® for broad acre use and longer corn rotations. Solid agronomics round out this leading product good for high-residue acres. A must try grain hybrid.
LIMITATIONS: Fast growth, heavy draw on nutrients. In poor drainage, situations evaluate nitrogen supply, sidedress nitrogen if denitrification occurs.
MANAGEMENT: SmartStax® recommended for longer rotations and excellent in high residue conditions. Excellent response to high fertility.
Single trait Glyphosate hybrid with strong dual purpose profile and wide adaptation. Versatile across soil types and harvest methods. Also versatile for grain, snaplage, silage and any type harvest. Consistent performer year to year.
LIMITATIONS: Moves south better than north where grain is to be harvested – more flexible northern fit for dual purpose & silage acres.
MANAGEMENT: Solid flex ear hybrid for wide use on any acre.
Conventional grain profile hybrid with additional dual purpose fit. Primary performer with grain with nice silage fit from central Pennsylvania and north. High end grain yield on rotated conventional acres. Good choice where northern corn blight can be a problem.
LIMITATIONS: High row count hybrid with limited ear flex. Keep populations at medium to high levels.
MANAGEMENT: Position on goodfirst or second year acres. Excellent option where there is a Northern Corn Leaf Blight history. Structured refuge option.
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.
