Van Rensburg Farming in the Ventersdorp area has been planting PAN 5R-591R as their main maize crop for the past three seasons. PAN 5R-591R is planted under dryland at 23 000 plants per hectare. The two characteristics about PAN 5R-591R that impresses them most is how strong it emerges, as well as its strong prolificacy. Thanks to Pieter Geldenhuys, Pannar's representative in the Ventersdorp region, for sharing this video with us.
PAN 5R-591R is a medium-early hybrid with glyphosate herbicide tolerance. This platform also includes PAN 5A-291, PAN 5B-491B and PAN 5R-891BR. It is the strongest prolific platform in the white hybrid range and is well adapted under dryland in the western production areas. The platform is a very good choice at lower plant populations and produces 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.
