MICHELEEN

Grain & silage corn - FAO 250 - HZ

The early maturing HZ type (flint/dent mixed type) grain maize variety was registered in the Austrian Variety List due to its high yield performances in 2021. MICHELEEN produces impressive plants with healthy leaves and stems, making MICHELEEN a suitable choice for silage corn production. This is confirmed by its excellent trial results from German livestock production areas, where MICHELEEN showed high dry matter yields and very good plant digestibility. When used as grain corn, MICHELEEN shines with best yield performances, rapid youth development, outstanding stability and good Fusarium tolerance.
