         P7326

Extra Early Maturity, FAO 180
Primary End Use: Forage, Biogas and Grain

P7326 is the biggest selling Pioneer hybrid in the early maturity region of the UK, Ireland and Scandinavia.

PACTS results show P7326 is clearly an obvious choice for growers who are seeking a hybrid that will reach 30% dry matter quickly and produce good yields of high starch content silage. P7326 has shown a high degree of adaptation to cultivation on less favourable locations, where heat is often limiting, and on favourable locations wherever an early harvest is required. P7326 has demonstrated very good early vigour.
   

 Hybrid Characteristics
  • Fastest Pioneer hybrid to reach 30% dry matter
  • Tall hybrid for such an early maturity
  • Very good early vigour with a lodging resistance score of 8.2
  • High starch content silage with good whole plant digestibility

 

 Grown In The Open 
  • On both favourable and less favourable sites
  • Where early vigour and rapid early growth is important
  • For production of dry grain or grain for crimping on all but marginal sites

 

 Grown Using The Samco System  
  • High comparative dry matter yields on the least favourable sites e.g. sites in Northern Ireland and South West Scotland
  • High grain yields for this maturity type on all sites
  • P7326 is a good selection on more favourable locations when sowing is delayed
