DUNA – FAO 700
CHAMPION AMONG LATE HYBRIDS. A LATE HYBRID WITH FULL VEGETATION, VERY ROBUST. STALK IS VERY HIGH (approximately 370 cm) WITH A MEDIUM HEIGHT EAR (~150 cm).
- Hybrid forms cylindrical, very long, often over 30 cm ear with 16-18 kernel rows. Dry silk provides excellent protection for the ear end. Very large, deep and heavy kernel is in the type of yellow dent corn.
- The main characteristic is a very large and branched tassel
- The stalk is very robust and stiff, resistant to stalk and root lodging, The massive root system enables excellent resistance to lodging at the root base
- Robust plant and ear, make it almost ideal for silage. Its grain is delicious for cattle, especially pigs.
- Like all hybrids of its FAQ group, DUNA has poor dry down rate, so, earlier planting is recommended. It is characterized by good early emergence. Planting should be started as soon as the soil warms up to 10°C.
- Due to the abundance of pollen produced, DUNA tolerates high temperatures well during pollination time.
- Hybrid is drought and plant disease tolerant.
- This adaptable hybrid can be grown in different environments. Best results are obtained in lowland areas, in river valleys with intense agricultural practice.
- Recommended planting density: 62 500 plants I ha (at 23 cm), in poor soil conditions adapt planting density by reducing the number of plants, but not below 58 000.
