P0362 Maize Silage Hybrid

Robust hybrid delivering yield and energy.

Has an exceptionally robust all-round profile for silage and grain.

  • Combines the best of yield and energy for maximum milk productivity.
  • A top option where standability, Northern Leaf Blight, Rust and Eyespot are concerns.
  • Superior drought tolerance, staygreen and yield stability.

Widely adapted to North Island growing regions where a hybrid of this maturity is required.

Companion with P9978 or P9911.

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 DM differences means the bolded hybrid was drier at harvest, negative DM 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.
