ZONA – FAO 420

ZONA – FAO 420

MEDIUM — EARLY HYBRID. HIGH GENETIC YIELD POTENTIAL. STALK HEIGHT IS ABOUT 280 cm, WITH MODERATELY HIGH POSITION OF THE EAR (~140 cm).

  • Hybrid forms about 22 cm kng ear and 16-18 kernel rows. Ear is healthy with very nice cylindrical shape and color. A very large, heavy kernel is in the type of yellow dent corn. Tends to prolificy, especially in good environment. In that case the second ear is slightly smaller.
  • Resistant to stalk and root lodging even at high density. Very robust hybrid, for its FAO group.
  • lt is characterized by remarkable early emergence regardless of the time of planting. Planting is not recommended until the soil is heated to a minimum of 10°C.
  • It is tolerant to drought and all economically important plant diseases.
  • It is characterized by good adaptability so it can be grown in different environments. Suitable for the lowland and the mountain regions as well.
