TMF2L825

Mycogen Seeds | Silage Specific Corn - TMF

Catalog > Seeds > TMF2L825

Overview

  • TMF hybrid that combines Herculex® I Insect Protection with Roundup Ready® and LibertyLink® technologies.
  • Excellent gray leaf spot tolerance will allow it to move into Eastern markets where high tonnage is top priority.
  • Adapted to higher plant densities.
  • Very tall plants with high ear placement and flex-ear style.
  • Very good Goss’s wilt and spider mite tolerance for western growing areas.

Mangement Guidelines

  • Highly recommended for silage use within its adapted maturity.
  • Good 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.
