Comet is a great silage or grain option with a silage CRM of 92, giving growers impressive results in the lower North Island and upper South Island. It has a long husk cover and semi-flex ear to go with its medium stature. An excellent rust resistance score means this is a great choice where this disease is a concern.

Comet is suited as a full maturity silage hybrid for the upper South Island and a mid-maturity choice for the lower North Island. For grain, it will be a feature for those growers looking for a robust and consistent early maturity variety.
