Profile

FARMUNOX is the earliest intermediate offered by DSV in the UK and has the best yields in this maturity bracket. This variety has excellent quality with good fusarium and outstanding eyespot resistance. It is listed as being equally well suited to Favourable and Less Favourable sites from the NIAB / BSPB data, producing excellent quality for both forage and AD plants.

FARMUNOX makes high energy forage thanks to its huge ME and dry matter yields in combination with high starch content. Dry matter yields at harvest are high – 18.6t/ha Favourable and 18.3t/ha Less Favourable and the ME yield of fresh plant at harvest is at least 212 (1000s MJ/ha) on Unfavourable sites.

With list-topping eye spot resistance and excellent vigour (6.9) for rapid growth at the start of the season, FARMUNOX really is the rising star with its outstanding starch content (31.5%) and great yields.
