PAC 500 demonstrates good early growth, establishing into a tall, bulky plant with large ears as well as very good staygreen which contributes to a wide harvest window. PAC 500 (previously known as Z71-F1) has a high grain content and very good whole plant digestibility.

PAC 500 is suitable for warmer northern regions where early planting is possible. It is suited to both dairy platform and contract silage production, targeting high yields and quality silage. Dairy farmers can take advantage of its performance by planting early on the platform or on a run-off.
