Carlene isn’t showy, but she is consistent. She’s just corn. Not a racehorse hybrid, but she has high yield and will handle some stress conditions. Not for the lightest soils nor the tightest clays; likes anything in between, especially darker clays and loams that handle 26-30,000 ppa. Long-eared “slender flex” eared hybrid. Use standard planting populations for area, up to 2000-2500 plants higher to push best yields. Works following corn, soybeans, wheat, and alfalfa. Great livestock feeding option with higher protein and oil content than average hybrids. Kernels may have a genetic dark spot where the silk attaches; feed this hybrid if your elevator has an attitude.
Pairs well with Charo (RM 100) and Dusty (RM 106).
