TMF2H918

Mycogen Seeds | Silage Specific Corn - TMF

Catalog > Seeds > TMF2H918

Overview

  • Tall, full-season hybrid, especially well-adapted to the California and Southwest silage markets.
  • Offers high tonnage, excellent staygreen, drought tolerance and standability.
  • Excellent gray leaf spot tolerance will allow it to move into Eastern markets where high tonnage is top priority.
  • Very tall plants with high ear placement and flex-ear style.
  • Recommend kernel processing.

Mangement Guidelines

  • Highly recommended for silage use within its adapted maturity.
  • Excellent plant agronomics will support moderate-high to high plant densities, especially under irrigated production.
  • Roundup Ready® and Ignite® herbicide technologies expand weed control options and provide an alternative for managing herbicide resistance.
  • A strong fertility program for silage production is important to maximize tonnage and maintain the quality of the silage.
  • Monitor harvest moisture closely as harvest approaches. Hybrids may be drier or wetter than physical appearance indicates.
  • When storing TMF hybrids in a pile or a bunker, recommended moisture levels for harvesting range from 65 percent to 68 percent moisture; for bags, 62 percent to 68 percent.
