P0547 Maize Grain Hybrid

The Rangitikei pace-setter.

A broadly adapted hybrid that is particularly productive in Rangitikei.

  • A well-balanced hybrid with grain appeal.
  • Outstanding early growth and drought tolerance.
  • Shows very fast grain drydown so reaches grain harvest moisture as a 101 CRM hybrid to facilitate earlier harvest timing.

Where Northern Leaf Blight is a concern plant P9978, P0021, or P0362.

Scientific Designation

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.
