LFG 9701R

Agronomy Notes

Industry leading digestibility and yield. Impressive ears develop Floury kernels
for maximum starch availability. Solid agronomics allow flexible positioning.
Above average leaf disease tolerance. Predicted favourable response to
fungicide at VT. Ears are long with 18 kernel rows. Husk cover is adequate to
short. Expanded harvest window allows flexible harvest timing. White cobs
increase feed palatability. Position in and south of maturity zone under
moderate populations.

Highlights
  • Floury gene for increased starch availability
  • Large, robust plant type
  • White cob for increased digestibility
  • Expanded harvest window
