A medium height plant with break-through yields. The last two seasons has seen PAC 564 yield a staggering 20% above the trial average, with a mean grain yield of 17.8 t/ha (@14%MC) and a maximum yield of 22.5 t/ha. At a nominal grain:silage yield conversion ratio of 2:3 this would equate to silage yields of approximately 27 t DM/ha (mean) and 34 t DM/ha (max) respectively. This is a unique medium, bulky hybrid in this ultra-full season bracket dominated by tall plants. As a result, PAC 564 has shown itself to be much more resilient, adaptable and resistant to lodging than all other hybrids tested in this bracket. It has very good drought tolerance and responds well to higher planting rates whilst still performing well at lower rates.
