Rodriguez is a new single cross variety bred by KWS. It was originally bred as very early grain maize, but in silage trials it has performed exceptionally well, producing big yields of very high starch silage. Yield is ahead of Severus and Ambition, silage quality is also better. Rodriguez was impressive in 2015, demonstrating a very high degree of stability in the cool weather. Pollination is very high producing full grain cobs across all sites. Rodriguez is popular across NW Europe for silage and grain.
