LG30.179

Best vigour score. Similar type to Rodriguez.

LG30.179 is a single cross variety. It was originally bred as early grain maize, but in silage trials it has performed exceptionally well. It produces big yields of very high starch silage. Yield is higher than Glory and Ambition, silage quality is also better. The performance of LG30.179 was impressive in the cool season of 2015.

It was also the best performing variety in Field Options trials in the challenging 2018 season, a high degree of stability. Pollination is very high producing full grain cobs across all sites. LG30.179 is popular across Scandinavia, Germany and Northern France for silage and grain.
