Dutchess is a crazy tough hybrid on pivot corners. It raised 130-150 bu corn where other corn died in 2021. Very tall and leafy for silage. Deep orange square wedge kernel on a 10-12” long ear with 18-22 kernels around. Tall, robust, giant. Thick circular stalk, heavy shank, excellent disease package, and strong pollen shed. Do not overplant. For grain use, keep populations lower. #1 stress corn on dryland for NE and SD (14,000-22,000 ppa is optimal). Dutchess is great for irrigated ground with low capacity wells at 26-28,000 ppa because of its giant root mass and ability to take a beating through hot summers. Avoid heavy tight clays; keep on light and medium soils. Do not plan on an early harvest; big flex ears will hold moisture. Black layers early. Good for silage and grain.
