Conduct comprehensive testing of new maize hybrids in the conditions of real farms – a common practice in the seed market. Their not with demonstration, but with commercial quantities of products (hybrids with the same calibration, the germination rate and the Etchant, which go on General sale) is a good tradition DEKALB, to help objectively evaluate the results obtained.
It should be noted that the test only registered and announced to the market new products in terms of lean years, what was 2018, is a thankless task, but hybrids DKC and DKC 4178 3079 passed this test with dignity.
Recall that in 2018 the gross harvest of maize declined in the whole country by 15% and amounted to 48 kg/ha. In some areas of the Krasnodar territory yields did fall to 20 C/ha. Prolonged drought, infestation of soil pests and secondary contamination of crops infections – here's what EN masse has faced farmers. What is the result in such conditions showed two new DEKALB, was in March last year?
So, early maturing hybrid DKC 3079 (FAO 190), has the highest yield potential in its maturity group (up to 140 kg/ha) producer focused primarily on the agriculture of the Central Chernozem region when working on various technologies. In this region in experiments last year, he showed yields of up to 108.3 kg/ha. While in 3 of the 18 tests performed, he was a leader in the grain harvest in another 4 – in the top three among all hybrids, including late-in other tests – in the top three in its group of ripeness.
The second novelty of last year, mid-season hybrid, DKS 4178 (FAO 330), intended for cultivation in the South of Russia in the farms with intensive technology. Having a yield potential of up to 180 kg/ha, in the extreme conditions of last year, developed in the southern regions, he helped to earn up to 124 kg/ha. With this result he won first place in 3 of the 14 experiments, 5 more entered the top three, the rest were in the top three in its group of ripeness.
"Last year for the CCA was more prosperous, and hybrid DKC 3079 proved themselves worthy. But in the South the year was extremely dry, and hybrid DKC 4178 had hard, but nevertheless he showed very good results even in such tough conditions, – commented Roman Kharlamov, head of development Department of technology DEKALB in Russia. – Despite the very convincing results of the first year, these figures are not the limit for these hybrids. The seeds have already entered the mass market. We also continue to build an experienced base on him this year. New results will not keep itself waiting".
Whatever the results of the practical tests, their main goal, as explained in DEKALB, not so much to demonstrate the potential of seeds as identify characteristics of hybrids, their strengths and weaknesses, attitude to thicken and much more to further correct positioning them in the line to provide the maximum yield.
