Mycogen Seeds is adding seven new BMR and TMF corn silage hybrids for the 2014 growing season, including five with SmartStax trait technology.

“Mycogen Seeds is excited to release new corn silage hybrids that offer strong agronomics and high tonnage potential,” says Greg Cannon, Mycogen Seeds forage portfolio marketing leader. “Our BMR hybrids contain the bm3 gene, proven in multiple university trials to deliver superior digestibility and increase milk production.”

New BMR hybrids
F2F378 is a medium-tall, full-canopy hybrid with excellent tonnage and Neutral Detergent Fiber Digestibility (NDFD). This SmartStax hybrid has solid agronomics, semi-flexible ears and a 95-day relative maturity.

F2F498 is a 99-day SmartStax hybrid with excellent NDFD, starch levels and ear fill. It features semi-flexible ears and moderately hard kernels.

F2F817 is a 116-day hybrid with good agronomics and tolerance to gray leaf spot and is well-adapted to the California dairy market. Its full, dense canopy and medium-tall plant make it a competitive tonnage BMR hybrid. F2F817 is a SmartStax hybrid with good whole-plant digestibility, semi-flexible ears and white cobs.

New TMF hybrids
TMF2H706 is a high-tonnage, SmartStax hybrid with good tolerance to drought-stress. It has moderately soft kernels, flexible ears and an attractive plant architecture. TMF2H706 has a relative maturity of 109 days and performs well across a variety of environments.

TMF2H745 has very high tonnage potential. This 113-day TMF hybrid has moderate kernels and good starch levels. Its flexible ears and tall structure produce an attractive plant.

TMF2R196 features new TMF genetics, offering excellent digestibility and starch levels. With a tall plant structure, consistent ear fill and semi-flexible ears, TMF2R196 is flexible across variable plant densities. It has a relative maturity of 85 days.

TMF2A637 is widely adapted from East to West, offering good tolerance to gray leaf spot. The 106-day SmartStax hybrid produces high tonnage and consistently girthy ears. TMF2A637 offers superb emergence, early vigor and good starch levels.

Advancing technology
The new Mycogen brand Silage-Specific corn hybrids provide forage growers with options and access to the latest technologies available in insect protection. The SmartStax trait combination available in the lineup offers a broad spectrum of above- and below-ground insect control with multiple modes of action.

“The new hybrids provide growers with flexibility while still offering the latest genetics and trait packages that they have come to expect from Mycogen Seeds,” Cannon says.
