LIKEIT

Everybody Likes IT

LIKEIT is a new very early forage maize with FAO 180. The variety has, although very early, a realtively long growth habit and a nice cob that leads to high starch contents. LIKEIT is a hybrid that was developped especially for cooler regions. The flint maize showed one of the best early vigors in the british NL trials and can be grown on every site.

- great early vigour

- much starch for cattle rations

- very tolerant against lodging and Fusarium
