Important:

Ratings are based on the average performance of a hybrid grown over a wide range of climate and soil types within its adapted maturity under normal growing conditions. Extreme conditions may adversely affect ratings.

Ratings
1 = Poor, 9 = Excellent

Adaptability Rating: R = Recommended HR = Highly Recommended NR = Not Recommended
Plant Height: T = Tall; MT = Medium-tall; M = Medium; MS = Medium-short; S = Short
Ear Height: H = High; MH = Moderately High; M = Moderate; ML = Moderately Low
Ear Type: D = Determinant; SD = Semi-Determinant; SF = Semi-flex; F = Flex
Kernel Texture: M= Medium Texture; MS = Medium Soft Texture; MH = Medium Hard Texture
Final Planting Population: Add ‘000’ to get the approximant population. NOTE: Final plant population recommendations include assumptions that soil fertility and moisture holding capacity are sufficient to sustain the crop at recommended populations. Corn CHU ratings shown are for Eastern Canada, typically Corn CHU ratings for Western Canada would be 100-150 heat units less.
