Wyffels Introduces 7 New Corn Hybrids

Wyffels Hybrids has introduced seven advanced corn hybrids to its commercial lineup for 2010, which now extends from 96 to 117 in relative maturity. The company has conducted proprietary corn research and breeding for over 30 years. That extensive experience, along with the scale and intensity of Wyffels’ research commitment, has positioned the company as an acknowledged leader in corn genetics. During the last three years, Wyffels has accelerated the release of diverse, high-performing, and well-tested hybrids through its unique research and development process and proprietary trait integration program.

“With the release of these new products, our maturity range and genetic diversity are at an all-time high,” says Dr. Fritz Behr, vice president of research at Wyffels Hybrids. “Our goal is to provide growers with a complete hybrid lineup that combines our proprietary new inbred lines and advanced genetics with cutting-edge advancements in seed technologies.”

The new corn hybrids include:

W1721 (96 RM, YieldGard VT Triple). An excellent early hybrid with outstanding yield potential across environments, W1721 comes on strong with good early vigor and fast canopy development, continues with solid agronomics, and finishes with impressive drydown of high test weight grain.

W2751 (102 RM, YieldGard VT Triple). This new hybrid will bring growers a great combination of top-end yields and rapid drydown. It’s widely adaptable across soil types, has very good drought tolerance, nice staygreen, and can handle higher populations for more dollars per acre.

W5051 (107 RM, YieldGard VT Triple). Here’s a solid yield performer with excellent drydown, in the W5281 tradition. Expect very good early vigor, green snap resistance, and drought tolerance. W5051 will respond to higher populations with an extra yield punch.

W6261 (109 RM, YieldGard VT Triple). Expect this newcomer to be a focus product in its maturity with an excellent combination of stable, high yields plus rugged root and stalk strength. W6261 is a shorter stature plant with good disease and drought tolerance and is highly recommended for continuous corn.

W6871 (110 RM, YieldGard VT Triple). From its impressive early canopy, to a great finish with excellent yield-to-moisture ratios, growers will like W6871. This is a stable, high-yielding hybrid that has a very good drought tolerance rating and is engineered for tough soils.

New non-GMO hybrids released include:

W3730 (104 RM). This is a non-GMO hybrid with amazing yields for its maturity, even in tough environments. Add excellent early vigor, unmatched roots and stalks, tough drought tolerance, and fast drydown for a solid package. W3730 is a great choice for continuous corn acres, and it will stand strong for a wide harvest window.

W6440 (109 RM). This hybrid brings exciting, reliable yield performance in a non-GMO choice with unique genetics. This new option has excellent early canopy development, exceptional roots and stalks, and fast drydown. W6440 displays good natural resistance to European corn borer and a high tolerance to anthracnose.
