LFG 875

Agronomy Notes

LFG 875 has attractive plant appearance, very good seedling vigour and large girthy ears. Grain will have unmatched starch digestibility. Plants are tall in stature with low to medium ear placement. Ears will have 16-18 kernel rows with soft digestible kernels.
Position at moderate populations; north and south of adapted maturity zone.

Management Tip – adjust ration to account for increased starch digestibility.

Highlights
  • Floury gene for increased starch availability
  • Unmatched yield potential
  • Tall plant stature
  • Very good seedling vigour
  • White cobs for more palatable silage

Traits and Technology

Conventional corn growers want high yields. For the most advanced, highest-yielding conventional corn hybrids, choose Maizex X-Series. These hybrids are developed using modern breeding techniques, but are GMO free. Conventional herbicide programs must be used for weed control.
