P0900 Maize Grain Hybrid

Hard to fault, stable, all-round hybrid.

P0900 is a tall plant with a long ear, packed with deep grain to deliver impressive grain and silage yields.

  • The season long grain appeal of P0900 is delivered by excellent standability, low ear placement, AQUAmax® drought tolerance, great foliar health and staygreen.
  • An exceptionally balanced package that delivers yield stability.
  • East Coast growers will value strong Head Smut resistance.
  • Companion with P0640 or P0937.

Already extensively planted between Dargaville and Napier.

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.
