P9400 Maize Grain Hybrid

Trusty and reliable. Delivers year after year.

An imposing plant that delivers consistent grain yields with high test weights.

  • Strong agronomically with a sound all round disease resistance offering.
  • A widely adapted hybrid intermediate in maturity between P9127 and P9721.
  • When planting very early into cold wet soils consider P9127 or P9721 depending on maturity requirements.

Performs best in moderate to high yield environments from Kaitaia to Masterton.

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.
