AS 5B23

FAO 570

DESCRIPTION OF HYBRID

  • AS 5B23 belongs to the latest generation of medium early hybrids with mixed application for both ear or kernel harvesting.
  • It releases moisture very efficiently. In the lower plant densities the hybrid will increase the size, and develops nice long ears which are easy to pick. The ear has 16-18 rows, and very thin corncob (13%).
  • The kernel is with glossy endosperm, with high specific weight and nice reddish-orange color, high in quality.
  • The kernel is deeply and strongly embedded into the corncob which provides very low losses of kernel during the picking. Hybrid is distinguished with high, very firm stalk and low ear insertation.

RECOMMENDATION

  • AS 5B23 is very adaptive to different growing conditions, no barren plants, and it delivers high yields even in not so favorable conditions.
  • On the usual corn-breading grounds and with sufficient soil fertilizing, recommended sowing density is 21-23 cm in row, or 62.000 to 68.000 plants per hectare. Sowing density should be adjusted, depending on the conditions.

PLANT POPULATION

The recommended sowing density in poorer conditions is from 57.000 to 59.000 plants/ha, in optimal conditions from 65.000 to 68.000 plants/ha and under irrigation conditions from 70.000 to 72.000 plants/ha.
