Hybrid Relative Maturity: What is it, how do you measure it, & why is it important
Maize can have many maturities dependent on the germplasm used and the latitude longitude and altitude where the maize is to be grown.
In this video, Dr. Benson explains what relative maturity in Maize means and how it is measured.
In the second video, Dr. Benson discusses how the corn/maize hybrid relative maturity should be centered on your farms unique latitude, longitude, altitude, and long-term relative seasonal growth patterns.
We are excited to start sharing Dr. Dave’s 40+ years of plant breeding & research knowledge with our growers. Stay tuned… more videos from Dr. Dave to come!
