DLF Pickseed Canada is releasing two new corn hybrids for 2021, which fit at either end of the maturity spectrum.
A new 2100 heat unit hybrid won’t find as much usage in Ontario, but there’s also a new 99 day relative maturity hybrid that will, says Sylvia Megens, manager of product development with DLF Pickseed Canada.
“It is a SmartStax hybrid that is a great dual purpose hybrid meaning it has great silage and grain potential.”
The company uses the Bayer trait platform and has conventional and traited hybrids available in numerous different maturities across Canada.
DLF Pickseed has RRDoublePro and SmartStax traits hybrids and Megens says several Trecepta trait hybrids, which is the new trait stack from Bayer, are being evaluated in the company’s testing system.
“We pride ourselves on the extensive research that we do before we launch them to the marketplace,” says Megens.
DLF Pickseed Canada also has silage specific corn hybrids available.
