KEY STRENGTHS
Shorter hybrid with a big, girthy ear! Among the best roots and early vigor in the industry! Exhibits a high level of anthracnose stalk rot tolerance. Strong drought tolerance.

WEAKNESSES
Goss’s rating is average. Not highly recommended in continuous corn.

POSITIONING
Looks great in all tillage programs and soil types. Good ear flex with excellent yield response to intensive management, especially with P, K, and micronutrients. Sensitive to high rates of ALS herbicides and really needs a solid pre-emerge herbicide program as the hybrid is short and there is a lot of ear flex possible.
