We have tested G09A86 for 2 seasons and are impressed with this hybrid. We don’t like the medium tall plant type, and though it lodging was generally good, it did go down in one site in 2018. But, on the plus side, it shows good consistent high yields on many soils and situations. By the data, it appears to have an advantage on poorer and drier soils. Another plus is it showed fast drydown in our trials. This hybrid is high on our recommend list.
