P1096 Maize Grain Hybrid

Secure plant delivers yield consistency.

A balanced all-round product which, like P0900 and P0937, is an obvious choice where standability and Northern Leaf Blight are seasonal challenges.

  • Short with low ear placement, superior roots, and stalks.
  • Strong Northern Leaf Blight and Rust resistances combine with dependable drought tolerance and staygreen for late season plant health & yield stability.
  • Has good husk cover and grain test weights like P0900.
  • Aim to establish 85,000 to 110,000 plants per hectare to match realistic paddock yield expectation.

A widely adapted hybrid from Northland to Hawke’s Bay.

star 1 star 2 star 3 = very highly significant yield advantage to Pioneer

star 1 star 2 = highly significant yield advantage to Pioneer

star 1 = significant yield advantage to Pioneer

NS = not significant

CA = commercially acceptable

1 Positive HM differences means the bolded hybrid was drier at harvest, negative HM differences mean it was wetter.

2 A positive yield advantage means the bolded hybrid produced more yield, a negative yield advantage means it produced less.
