P0725 Maize Silage Hybrid

Superior performance with extraordinary consistency.

Delivers top-end silage yields in all warmer northern production regions.

  • Optimum AQUAmax® drought tolerance provides resilience when it is dry and yield responsiveness with favorable growing conditions.
  • Standability and notable staygreen provide a wide harvest window that contractors will appreciate.
  • Produces high grain content silage with digestibility ratings that drive milk production.

Where Northern Leaf Blight is a concern consider P0900, an alternative AQUAmax® option, P0937 or P1096.

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.
