Aliya is a hybrid that you do not have to worry about. Plant at normal populations for area as soon as conditions allow for planting—Aliya has very good cold tolerance and emergence. You can push the population to above average for the area if you have sufficient moisture and nutrients. Semi-open canopy. Plant across all soil types. Responds to additional N side-dressing. Aliya is a good hybrid to plant and see how the growing season is progressing; if favorable, invest more into crop inputs. Does not need foliar fungicide application. Healthy late into season and stands well. Dries down well after a frost. High quality grain.
