A robust, super-sweet hybrid with very strong plants and large ears
• Vigorous seedlings
• Robust plant growth
• Concentrated harvest period
• Highly adaptable to variety of climatic conditions
Supersweet hybrid for the fresh market.
A late maturing variety that can be harvested 90 days after planting (Southern African summer planting conditions apply). The date of harvesting may vary by as much as 10 days between early and late season plantings. This needs to be taken into consideration when planning planting schedules under different growing conditions. For accurate planning heat units should be monitored.
Very large and robust plants with exceptional seedling vigour, with an average plant height of 2.2m. Ears are positioned 90cm above the ground.
Attractive uniform ears with a very gentle taper and tight husk protection. Ear length 18 – 20 cm and diameter of 48 -50mm and 16 - 18 straight kernel rows with a kernel depth of up to 12mm. Kernel colour is bright yellow at optimum maturity.
IR: local Rust strains (Ps) and Northern Corn Leaf Blight (Et).
Features & Benefits:
STAR 7719 seedling vigor and robust growth habit allows for year round production in less than favorable climatic conditions. The ear quality and uniformity ensures a good quality ear for the fresh market. The uniform growth habit means a relatively short harvest window. Because of the plant material mass, it can very successfully be used as silage after the ears are harvested.
