A few issues ago, Grainews featured new corn varieties for 2013. Here are some more to consider.
You can find more information about these Croplan varieties at www.croplangenetics.com.
- 2123VT2P / 2123RR 2500 CHU — Attractive later-flowering hybrids with fast drydown, good seedling vigour, and strong roots and stalks. Exceptional resistance to northern corn leaf blight, eyespot, common rust, anthracnose and fusarium stalk rot.
- 2845SS 2725 CHU / 2845VT2P 2700 CHU — Early-flowering hybrids with high yield potential. Excellent stand establishment, disease resistance and fast drydown. Perform best in medium to medium-high plant populations on rotated or corn-on-corn acres.
- 3499VT3P / 3499VT2P 2850 CHU — Shorter plants with lower ear placement deliver consistently high yields with excellent drought, greensnap and Goss’s wilt tolerance. Adapted for a variety of east to west geographies.
- 3533VT2P 2875 CHU — Excellent, high-yield potential choice for light, sandy or doughty soils. The female provides greater genetic diversity and increases the root size, ear length and stress tolerance of the male.
- 3733VT2P 2900 CHU — A good option for wet, sticky poorly drained soil. The female provides greater genetic diversity and increases the root size, ear length and stress tolerance of the male.
- 3899VT2P 2875 CHU / 4099SS 2950 CHU — These tall, racehorse hybrids offer excellent seedling vigour, comprehensive disease packages, and above-average stalk strength and test weight. High Goss’s wilt and heat tolerance.
- 4975VT3P / 4975VT2P 3075 CHU — Goss’s wilt and greensnap tolerance, strong roots and stalks, and above-average staygreen and late-season intactness. Performs well in corn-on-corn rotations with the flexibility to plant north and south of maturity zone. †
