The Pannar Seed white maize hybrid package is distinguished by its exceptional performance, adaptability and stability for good risk management. In the ultra early growth class
PAN 3R-573R is an exciting new addition for the high potential eastern production region and also for cultivation under irrigation. In the dryland western regions PAN 5R-891BR (MON 89034) and PAN 6R-779BR are two exiting new hybrids.
PAN 3R-573R (Platform PAN 3A-173, Base PAN 3A-173)
These hybrids exhibit a typical ultra early plant-type and characteristics with an upright leaf, growth habit and good standability. They tend to be prolific. These hybrids produce a high ratio of grain to stover. They are well adapted to high plant populations with good general disease tolerance and good grain quality. A good choice for irrigation and also recommended under high potential dryland conditions. In areas where high levels of NCLB are encountered, the YIELDBOOSTTM fungicide spray programme is recommended to curb the disease and protect the yield potential.
PAN 5R-891BR (Platform PAN 5A-291, Base PAN 5A-291, BT PAN 5R-491B, R PAN 5R-591R)
This platform is highly prolific and demonstrates strong seedling vigour and early plant establishment. Widely adapted and maintains very good stable performance at different yield potential levels. Very good performance on high potential soils in the western production areas with a clay content of <10% in the topsoil. PAN 5B-491B is the top performer in the ARC trials on the water table soils for the 2018/2019 season. PAN 5B-491B and PAN 5R-891BR have the advantage of second-generation stalk borer protection.
Very good stability. Adapted to high potential soils, plant at a higher plant population, it should be planted 10-20% above the normal plant population for the area. Single cobbing with a "flex-ear" type that can compensate for optimum production conditions. Well adapted for the western high yield potential regions.This hybrid has upright leaves and excellent standability. Exhibits good tolerance to Northern Corn Leaf Blight.
