This combination is the most plastic hybrid available. It responds to environmental variation by adjusting yield accordingly. Under limited moisture situations the hybrid is consistent in its yield but when greater moisture amounts are available yield levels increase significantly.
- Maturity is full-medium season.
- Height is consistent with its maturity range. Exsertion is very good.
- Leaves tend to be slightly drooping.
- Panicle shape is semi-open, round seeds, bright red translucent grain color, awned spikelets, and purple necrotic plant color.
The hybrid has excellent resistance to headsmut. Tillering capacity is good and will produce 2-3 tillers that are synchronous with the main panicle at flowering/maturity. Yield is very good and the hybrid is considered to be environmentally stable.
