SIBERIA – FAO 400
HYBRID WITH GENETICS OF THE LATEST GENERATION, VERY ADAPTIBLE. IN INTENSIVE PRODUCTION COULD ACHIEVE THE TOP RECORD YIELDS WITH LOW MOISTURE RATE. MID-EARLY HYBRID WITH HIGH AND STABLE YIELDS. SHORT STALK (AROUND 250cm) AND LOW POSITION OF THE EAR (~75cm).
- The ear is cylindrical and healthy, topped with grains, has excellent ratio cob/grain. Forms up to 18 rows of high quality kernel, on an ear ~24cm long. The kernel type is yellow dent corn, with high mass per 1000 grains.
- The stalk is elastic and strong, resistant to breakage and root lodging. Deep and well ramified root system enhances the root lodging resistance, as well as it increases the hybrid’s tolerance towards drought and stressful conditions.
- This hybrid is characterized by an extremely high drydown rate and quick grain moisture release period in the autumn. Siberia is suitable for combine grain harvesting, with minimal or no expenses for the artificial drying, while being ideal for cob harvest and storage.
- Siberia is tolerant towards almost all economically important plant diseases. It’s an adaptable hybrid, which makes it suitable for growing in various types of soil and agro-ecological conditions. It grows well in both plain and hilly areas, and easily achieves extraordinary yields.
- Due to extremely high genetic yield potential, this hybrid responds very well to optimal fertilization, achieving top yields. If irrigated, Siberia would easily beat the competition. With proper agrotechnics, this hybrid will return the favor with superior yield, due to its superior genetic background. Sowing Siberia is highly recommended for the conditions of intensive agrotechnics.
- Recommended planting density: 74 000 plants/ha (at 19 cm), in poor soil conditions adapt planting density and reduce the number of plants, but not under 65 000.
