KEY STRENGTHS

Top-end yield and best-in-class Goss’s wilt tolerance! Great test weight and diplodia protection, too.

WEAKNESSES

Only average on gray leaf spot and northern corn leaf blight.

POSITIONING

With parentage from the 105-110 day class on the male side, this hybrid is best used in zone and south. Use a medium-high plant population as it responds to higher pop’s. Loves irrigation. Best placement is on average to above average ground. Responds very well to foliar fungicides and intensive fertility management. Harvest timely as fall stalk health is only average but can often be improved with K, Mn, and Cu fertility.

AGRONOMIC & DISEASE RATINGS

The higher the number, the better the performance or rating.
