Dakota is a proven high-yielding and fast-developing hybrid in SD, MN, and NE. Extremely healthy during the season with excellent ear retention. Holds ears in the wind when other hybrids cannot. Not prone to greensnap; suits the west well. Takes GLS and Goss’s Wilt well. Will follow soybeans, wheat, or corn. Normal plant, but at harvest will be a stalk and an ear. Great for residue management in 220-300 bu environments. Plant 1500-2000 ppa higher to compensate for slightly shallower kernel depth. We recommend 29,000-31,500 ppa under irrigation and 24,000-30,000 dryland. Works well in no-till and average cold soil conditions. Does well on variable soils. Other hybrids recommended for compacted clays. Has achieved 300 bu yields under irrigation in SD.
