|Northern Corn Leaf Blight|
High and stable grain yield for northern grain production with cooler temperatures. Can yield with longer season maturities and dry faster. Long rotation fit with rootworm and corn borer protection. Smaller hybrid in stature, holding plant size across variable conditions. Excellent stalks/roots for harvest flexibility.
LIMITATIONS: Medium cold soil tolerance.
MANAGEMENT: Use for any position in the corn rotation, including late cycle where corn borer and rootworm risk increase significantly.
Erect leaved conventional grain hybrid with consistent performance for grain and dual purpose acres. Exceptional drydown and test weight, including northern environments and cooler locations. Grain matures well when planted early and late, including the north.
LIMITATIONS: May show late season Northern Corn Leaf Blight of certain races – good record maintaining yield in presence of NCLB over years.
MANAGEMENT: Good choice across variable soils. Free native genetic resistance to first generation corn borer. Like other conventionals has limited resistance to second generation corn borer. Structured refuge option.
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.
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.
