This is a crazy tough hybrid on sand pivot corners in NE. It can raise 130-150 bu corn where other corn died in 2021. Very tall and leafy for silage. Very deep orange square wedge kernel on a 10-12” long ear with 18-22 kernels around. Tall. Robust. Giant. Thick circular big stalk, heavy shank, excellent disease package, strong pollen shed. Do not overplant. #1 stress corn on dryland for NE and SD. Designed as a dryland product, Dutchess has found her way onto NE irrigated ground at 26-28,000 ppa because of her giant root mass and ability to take a beating through NE summers. Avoid heavy tight clays; keep on light and medium soils. Do not plan on an early harvest: her big flex ears will hold moisture for a 108 day hybrid.
Pairs well with Dusty (RM 106) and Jessica (RM 110).
