Queen is a tough, flex-ear hybrid. Originally designed for high-stress fields, Queen also does well in highly productive fields. Works on heavy and wet soils, eroded clays, and medium to lighter soil types. Plant from 14,000-25,000 ppa on stress fields and up to 32,000 ppa on better soils where fertility allows. Massive root system. Pollinates early with a long grainfill period. Not suitable for late planting. Very dark green plant with a unique look. Ears are yellow-orange bricks with deep, square kernels. Can set 2 ears at lower pops. Very healthy—takes time to dry down in the fall; needs a hard frost to kill it. Holds plant size, even under stress. Solid dual-purpose hybrid if chopping silage. Has skirted 300 bu in our research trials. A good option for regenerative farming.
