PAC 624 is a purpose-bred silage hybrid for early plant situations in the warmer northern regions and is firmly positioned as a market leader in this ultra-long maturity group. Large girth cobs packed with soft, starchy grain combined with good digestibility ensures silage of excellent quality is produced.

The hybrid has good standability, however the sheer size of the plants means that it can become overcrowded at high planting rates, increasing cob height and reducing standability and cob tip fill.
For this reason we recommend lower than usual planting rates that will still produce very high yields.

Chop length can be adjusted for maize crops that are harvested too wet or too dry.
