G09Y24 wins. You will like the medium height, the versatility for geographic placement (N-S, E-W), the ability to excel following corn, the broad adaptation for soils including sands, clays, and any level of organic matter, and especially the consistently high yields. Weaknesses appear to be slow drydown, average roots, and the sensitivity to drought prior to tassel. But when G09Y24’s lowest yields are higher than the high yield of other hybrids, it is still a winner.
