Rodriguez

Our best-selling variety. Big yields of very high-quality silage.

Rodriguez is a single cross variety from KWS. It was originally bred as a very early grain maize, but in silage trials it has also performed exceptionally well. It produces big yields of very high starch silage. Yield is ahead of Severus and Ambition, silage quality is also better. Rodriguez performance was impressive in cool seasons and marginal areas, demonstrating a high degree of stability. Pollination is very high producing full grain cobs across all sites. Rodriguez is popular across NW Europe for silage and grain.
