Profile

LiROYAL typifies the DSV UK maize portfolio, balancing yield, quality and agronomics to give the UK grower the ultimate package.

LIROYAL is a very early forage maize that is equally well suited to Favourable and Less Favourable sites. Although very early, it has a relatively tall growth habit and a well-formed cob that leads to high starch content, great digestibility and strong yields, as UK trials have demonstrated.

A high performing all-rounder with top yield in its class, LiROYAL offers dairy farmers, and grain and AD growers alike the opportunity to profit from a variety that is agronomically complete.

 

" With weather patterns becoming less predictable the requirement for robust and consistent maize varieties has never been greater.LiROYAL offers the perfect balance of yield, quality and maturity to suit a wide range of applications. Capable of producing over 18 tonnes of dry matter and in excess of 6 tonnes hectare of starch, LiROYAL is the perfect choice for high performing livestock systems or as the early variety in a balanced energy maize portfolio. Good standing ability and large uniform cobs also make LiROYAL ideal for the increasing maize grain or crimped maize grain markets. Good disease scores complete the package making LiROYAL the most versatile of maize varieties in what is an increasingly diverse marketplace for the maize plant."
