Xandra is a Leafy hybrid: do not plant at populations higher than 28,000, especially in 30” rows.  Works in all kinds of tillage systems and rotations; she is especially strong in corn on corn rotations.  Plants are big and healthy, though Xandra has some susceptibility to Northern Corn Leaf Blight.  If NCLB symptoms appear, consider a foliar fungicide application.  Flowers on time for maturity.  Standability is good.  Maintains health for a longer chopping window.  Xandra is a high tonnage-producer with good feed quality.  This hybrid has produces 33 ton/ac under irrigation in ND.  Great natural insect tolerance.

Pairs well with silage-specific Zelda (Silage 95).  Good dual-purpose pairings are Vanessa (RM 103), Dutchess (RM 108), and Jolene (RM 113) for the flex acres.
