P8805 Maize Grain Hybrid

All-rounder for tough and ideal conditions.

A tough hybrid providing growers with production stability.

  • Performs where water may be limited as well as under ideal conditions.
  • Has excellent all-round agronomics, a balanced disease profile and fast drydown.
  • A popular choice for growers in northern production regions who require early grain harvest.

A resilient widely adapted plant which may be grown from Northland, as a very early option, all the way to Canterbury as a fuller season product.

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.
