P1837 Maize Silage Hybrid

Defensive full-season giant.

  • Very tall, with superior standability, excellent resistance to Northern Leaf Blight and Rust.
  • Also has an excellent drought tolerance and staygreen which support season long "silage eye appeal".
  • Has a similar maturity and silage yield potential to P1636 and P1477W.
  • Plant to established 80,000 to 100,000 plants per hectare depending on paddock yield potential.

Widely adapted, stable, full-season hybrid. Plant early in high potential paddocks in warm northern production areas.
