This new 111 day hybrid looks particularly good following soybeans on non-droughty fields. High points are medium plant height, quick drydown, a very good stalk and very good yield. There is some sensitivity to drought stress prior to tassel. Other soil reactions show this to be a very versatile hybrid from sand to clay and low organic to high. We do not have enough data to predict performance following corn.
