LIBERATOR

Born for Corn

  • very high grain yields
  • good resistance to lodging
  • high yield constancy

LIBERATOR is the new, mid early grain maize, which has received grade 9 from the Bundessortenamt for its highest grain yield. The variety demonstrated very stable grain yields at a very high level during the two previous value analysis years, independent of the location. It has a low tendency to tillering and low susceptibility to stem rot. As a silage maize, LIBERATOR also gives a high-energy yield.
