Phillip Nel, Pannar's representative in Koster and surrounding areas, shares this video of PAN 5B-491B. It produced a good average yield of 8.5 tons/ha in the vicinity of Boons, which is situated between Derby and Magaliesburg. The PAN 5B-491B was cultivated under dryland conditions at a plant population of 35 000 plants per hectare.
PAN 5B-491BR is a medium early hybrid with second-generation stalk borer protection. This platform also includes PAN 5A-291, PAN 5R-591R and PAN 5R-891BR. It is the most prolific platform in the white hybrid range and is very well adapted to dryland conditions, especially in the western production areas. The platform is a very good choice for areas where lower plant populations are planted. These hybrids produce a robust plant and a strong root system. Combined with its very strong prolificacy, these hybrids are very well adapted to production conditions where rainfall tends to vary over seasons. They tolerate drought stress well and under good production conditions, can compensate by producing a fully-fledged second cob, thus producing a full crop.
