Have you got good maize growing land? Or are you on a marginal site considering growing under plastic? Want to achieve massive DM yields?
YOU NEED HOBBIT:
- Highest yielding variety on NIAB Descriptive List 2015
- Potential for massive yields of Dry Matter – 115% controls
- Exceptional early vigour
- Suitable for Forage, Biogas production and drilling under plastic
Cob ripeness: 6.6 mean. Large indeterminate cob with large number of grain sites. Good cob maturity for longer season variety. Cob ripening days after Picker + 19
Maturity Group 6: Good level of maturity in more favourable maize growing areas. Exceptional early vigour for the best possible start. Performs very well when grown under plastic on marginal sites.
Quality and digestibility: ME 11.4 Starch 29.8% Highest ME yield tested by NIAB 211,000Mj/ha (+18,000 above average) and 5.64t/ha starch yield.
Plant description: Height 2.6m Stay Green 8.1. Very tall plant with lots of leaf bulk from very erect leaves. Attractive green plant with the ability to photosynthesis through to harvest. Very good early vigour, grows quickly in the spring.
Yield:18.9t/DM/ha Potential for enormous Dry Matter yields. Suitable for Biogas production or as a high yielding forage on better maize growing sites. Shows same high levels of yield when grown under plastic.
