Arvid - SOLD OUT for 2021
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.
