This table provides silage quality and yield scores for selected NK hybrids based on actual tonnage and silage analysis values, and represents relative differences
among hybrids of a similar maturity.

NOTE: Hybrid characteristics such as staygreen and drought stress tolerance are also important to consider when selecting hybrids for silage. Digestibility ratings are based on NIR and in-vitro digestibility analysis. Milk performance
estimates generated from University of Wisconsin equations. Comparisons should only be made among hybrids within a maturity group. Although actual silage yield and quality analysis of a hybrid will vary with environment, the relative
ranking of a hybrid will be similar. These ratings are a relative performance guide. Conduct a laboratory test to determine actual silage quality when balancing a feed ration.



 Hybrids highlighted are Agrisure Artesian ®. These hybrids maximize yield when it rains and increase yield by up to 15% when it doesn’t.

Agronomic Research Rating
★ Greatest opportunity to maximize performance relative to other hybrids in maturity group
● Performs well relative to other hybrids in maturity group
▼ Performance is lower relative to other hybrids in maturity group
✖ Performance is below desired levels relative to other hybrids in maturity group

Vibrance® Maxx RFC




We’re behind you at every step of the season to help improve your crop’s quality and yield. Start with a
uniform stand by using Vibrance® Maxx RFC seed treatment for control of a broad range of diseases, or
Cruiser Maxx® Vibrance® Beans seed treatment for excellent insect and disease control. If you’re farming
in an area where soybean cyst nematode is a problem, choose our innovative Clariva™ pn seed treatment.
Fend off weeds in your conventional soybean fields with Boundary® LQD herbicide at the full rate early
in the season for dependable annual grass control.
In your glyphosate tolerant soybeans apply a pre-emergent application of Boundary LQD at a reduced rate,
tank-mixed with glyphosate to provide early-season control of grasses and Eastern black nightshade.
Follow up in season with a herbicide application of your choice.
Boost your in-crop leaf disease defense with Trivapro™, our three-mode-of-action fungicide. Trivapro delivers
preventative and curative activity to stop existing disease and protect against future infection, along with
long-lasting residual control. If you’re worried about white mould, Allegro® fungicide can help you proactively
manage the disease and finish the season strong.

    Callisto GT and Halex GT are for GT corn only.




    Syngenta has you covered when it’s time to protect your yield potential from weeds, diseases
    and insects. Choose Lumax ® EZ herbicide when you need a flexible, pre-emergence option,
    or Acuron™ herbicide to help handle your toughest broadleaf weeds. For powerful post-emergent
    weed control, clean up your fields with Halex® GT herbicide.
    If the threat of foliar disease looms, count on elite-level control from Trivapro™ fungicide. Its three
    modes of action provide preventative, curative and long-lasting residual protection to help you
    produce corn with bigger ears, more kernels and greater yield potential.
    Concerned about Western bean cutworm? Protect your yield and quality with foliar-applied
    Voliam Xpress® insecticide. Its dual modes of action give you fast knockdown and residual control
    of lepidopteran and chewing and sucking insects at all life cycle stages in your field.
