|I am considering growing these hybrids next season. What is your opion of each for fair to marginal upground with a yield potential of 125-180. TIA|
NW central IL
|62-54 seems to "give-up" alittle early in the wet holes. takes heat well |
64-69 dont put it on corn on corn, seemed to take the heat pretty well. mine hit the ground early, on 2 of my farms with it. 64-69 will not be back on my farms next year, because of how bad it was with corn on corn, anthracnose was horrible
62-97 seemed to be a good all around corn. it was AWESOME on my rolling rotational ground. One of my best on corn on corn, stood well also
|DK 6297 was good here. I think it was third in my plot to Agri gold 6533 and DK 6384.|
20 Miles West of Indianapolis Indiana
AG 6533 gets er done again! If your an AG man check out 6573 as well. its been doing good in plots around me. and no i'm not a salesman of anysort.
|Will do, 6533 has done very good here. AG 6458 was 5th in plot. We are DK men here mainly because a relative sells it but will always plant some others too. How many day corn is 6573?|
|Is there some kind of formula for Agri gold that i don't know about?|
|I don't know. I'm new to Agrigold, and have a book in front of me. I should add 6573 is on my list.|

|we liked 62-54 done very well for us 64-69 really impressed us was not corn on corn though but loved it, had no anthracnose here, 62-97 very pleased will plant them all again, one thing with 54 it loves nitrogen so double pass on it thats our plan to do with it next year. |

|After what I saw of the 8437 this year side by side against 61-69 and 63-42, it won't have any problems being at the top. Our Wyffels 7071 done very well on ground like you describe but we are also not neighbors. ;-)|
|A couple comments caught my eye 6254 " doesn't like wet feet and really likes N" reason is most weak rooted hybrids (6254) have a need for constant N because they lack decent roots that is also what makes it a good marginal ground hybrid. I always thought that hybrid was oversold. It's never been more than average for us in Illinois. 6469 hasn't impressed me at all it's sickly and weak. 6297 has to be the best hybrid DKC has. Pretty versatile and pretty darn good. I see the yield gap narrowing in a big way. DKC was far and away the best going but i think they are about like all the rest now. They have one or two good numbers. |
I think some oof the newer traits like viptera 3111 and the genetics that are being paired with them are the next big thing. We've ridden the vt3 train a little too long .
|64-69 had a tendency to green snap in TN.|
|DKC 6469 is a good one! I planted a little this year and it looked great, I didn't quite have it thick enough. Fixed ear, I planted it at 26,000. It was still better than the Flex ear beside it. It is in my lineup for 2012, going on my best up land.|
|Not a 62-54 fan. Look at 61-88. |
My 64-69 was 10 bu under 61-88 and 14 bu under 62-97.
|62-97 best corn they have around here. 64-69 awful lodging high risk for greensnap etc. I would have to agree that Dekalb has been caught up with on the yield gap. I am starting to be more open minded to some other companies especially since they aren't asking a premium price. The VT3 has been used for a while and i don't like that, but remember genetics first then traits. I am glad the gap has been closed because that makes things more competitve and better for us farmers!!! Gonna plant some Viptera Garst corn this year as well as try some more Pioneer 1018 and 1395.|
|65-63 is good COC number, 62-97 is very good also, but dont plan on getting much of it next year, is very limited I was told and have been told by several people, hoping to get 1 planter full our rep is kinda trying to keep everybody to 1 planter fill this year, he is that limited with that number.|

|6188 was the worst hybrid in our plot (other than 58-83 which was terrible) |
62-97 and 62-09 are both good
AG 6533 and 6553 both had good years
NW central IL
|out "here", they act like we can have all the 62-97 we can want. i had more then a planter full last year, but only because i demanded it|
|Here in the South, 64-69 has had excellent results. It has been a shorter variety (compared to Pioneer's varieties) and does not look good in the field when walking through it. But once we put the combine in it, it has performed very well. I would have bet just looking at the variety that it would not do very well, but it yielded great. The earlier posts about the 62-97 has me wondering about that particular variety. We have not been exposed to it yet, but we're always looking for that early season variety that can be double cropped under an irrigation pivot although it is still 112 day corn. Does anyone have good results with a 100 - 105 day Dkb or Pioneer variety?|
|Have had very good luck with 52-59 DK, its a 102 day number, was very good on my dryland this year and had some in a plot least year next to what had always been good to me 105day P number, this was under irrigation and the DK smoked the P by darn near 40 bu. The P was 35f44. I custom harvested quite a little of that 52-59 this year on dryland also and was good corn no matter where it was.|
|58-83 seemed to tank everywhere, maybe it couldn't handle this years heat wave. In our area it lodged severly as well. Funny, 61-88 was really good in our area.|
|62-54 did well here but no side by side comparisons. I will plant more next year. |
We had 61-35, 63-84, 64-69, and Pio 1184 in side by side comparisons. The 61-35, 63-84, and 1184 were within 5 bushels of each other. The 64-69 was a disappointment as it yielded about 25 bushels less.
63-84 was my best Dekalb number. Didn't have any 62-97 but will plant some next year.
All of the above was corn on corn in notill with a very stressful growing season.
