Overview

  • Flex-ear style adapts to a wide range of plant densities.
  • Medium-texture grain shells easily from the cob.
  • Widely adapted east to west across the central Corn Belt.
  • Top-end yield potential in high-yield environments.
  • Plant at medium-high to high plant densities for best results.

Mangement Guidelines

  • Tolerance to gray leaf spot (GLS) is intermediate. Avoid fields that have potential for severe GLS.
  • Performs well on marginal soils, but will show a strong, positive response to high levels of fertility and high populations.
  • Well-adapted to the heat and drought stresses of the western Corn Belt.
  • Roundup Ready® and IGNITE® herbicide technologies expand weed control options and provide an alternative for managing herbicide resistance.
  • Properly mark and record all fields planted to hybrids with herbicide-tolerant traits to avoid herbicide misapplications.
  • Requires no separate, structured insect refuge. The refuge required is incorporated in the bag.
