LG30 179

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 ahead of Severus and Ambition, silage quality is also better. The performance of LG30.179 was impressive in the cool season of 2015 demonstrating exceptional vigour and 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.
