Early, with excellent vigour, very high yield and high starch
Arvid is an old Nordic name, reflecting the varieties suitability to the marginal maize growing areas of Northern Europe. It is a very uniform three-way cross variety bred by KWS. Early vigour is excellent and yield has been consistently high across a range of sites over the last three seasons. It has been outstanding in Field Options independent trials. In 2018 it also showed good drought tolerance. Arvid is consistently +/- 5 days earlier than Glory and Ambition and yields >1.5 t/ha more silage (33%DM) than Glory. Moderate standing power, so avoid late drilling on very fertile sites exposed fields.
