Home run hitter closely related to H4522! Explosive yields across high and low productivity fields. Callouts include staygreen, late season intactness, and Goss’s and gray leaf spot tolerance. Has a moderate level of native tolerance to 1st generation European corn borer.
Northern corn leaf blight tolerance is average.
This hybrid will flex for length and responds well to increased soil and applied fertility. Fungicide response is average, but improves greatly if northern corn leaf blight protection is needed. Planting time insecticide is recommended in areas of the country with moderate levels of rootworm or other soil insect pressure.
