MZ 397

Agronomy Notes

MZ 397 starts the season with very good seedling vigour resulting in rapid canopy closure. Plants are tall with moderate ear placement. Ears are large with 18 to 20 kernel rows. Husks cover the ear tips and open well to aid drydown.
Stalks are strong throughout harvest. Plants have average health and stay-green
into the fall. This hybrid excels in low-yield environments and competes well in
high-yield scenarios.

Highlights
  • Aggressive seedling vigour
  • Husks open well at harvest
  • Strong stalks well into the fall
  • Average plant health
  • Large ears with deep kernels
  • Benefit from fungicide at VT

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.
