P7524 Maize Silage Hybrid

Stands and delivers tonnes of high energy feed.

P7524 is recognised as a reliable performer producing impressive silage yields with outstanding energy and whole-plant digestibility.

  • A very tall plant with superior stalks and roots which together with low ear placement deliver great standability.
  • Combines strong drought tolerance and staygreen.

An extremely popular choice for growers who require a maturity option earlier than P8000.

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.
