Corn Zea mays L.
A simple early-ripening hybrid. Adaptable. High-yielding. Rapid initial growth

Originator - Plant Production Institute named after V.Ya. Yuriev of NAAS.

Included in the Register - 2017.

Recommended zones of cultivation: Steppe, Forest-Steppe, Woodlands.

Variety - ssp. indentata.

The plant height is 250-280 cm. The cob attachment height is 95-100 cm. The leaf number per plant is 14-15. The cob length is 20-22 cm. The number of grain rows is 14-16. The grain output is 85-86%. The cob rhachis is red. The 1000-seed weight is 270-275 g.

Ripeness group – early-ripening FAO 190. The "seedlings-full maturity" period is 95-100 days. The initial growth is rapid. Cold tolerance is high. Drought resistance is high. Resistance to loose smut is high. Resistance to boil smut is high. Resistance to stem rot is high. Resistance to corn borer is high.

The potential grain yield is 11.0-11.5 t/ha. The recommended harvest density: 50,000-55,000 plants/ha – in the Steppe, 63,000-65,000 plants/ha – in the Forest-Steppe, and 65,000-68,000 plants/ha – in the Woodlands. The harvest water content is 18-19%. The protein content in grain is 9.8%. The starch content is 77%.

Seed production peculiarities. The seed production of this hybrid is based on M-type sterility according to the complete restoration algorithm, without removing panicles. The optimal sowing arrangement for parents in hybridization plots is 12:4 or 6:2. Hybridization plots require intensive farming, weed control and nutrition.

When grown by intensive farming techniques, the seed yield amounts to 2.0-2.5 t/ha.
