Velocity produces a medium statured plant that is deceiving in its capability to produce high silage  yields with very good digestibility and starch content. Uniform ears with excellent test weight grain give Velocity the added advantage of being able to be harvested for grain if required.

Velocity has excellent stalk strength and with very good root strength can stand confidently through to harvest for either silage or grain. Very good tolerance  to rust infection adds to its strong late-season plant health.

DID you know?

There can be differences in root growth patterns between maturity groups. Maturity groups are greater than individual hybrids. Given similar growing conditions, a full season hybrid will produce a higher root mass and a corresponding higher yield potential.
