Agronomy Notes

Aggressive seedling vigour allows for rapid emergence and canopy closure.
Seedlings develop into large, robust plants with wide leaves. Large ears
have kernels with soft texture to increase digestbility. White cobs increase
feed palatablity. Early flowering allows movement north of zone. Position
under moderate populations.

Highlights
  • Increased starch availability
  • Aggressive seedling vigour
  • Robust plant stature
  • White cobs for more palatable silage
