Maize crop



P7179 is a new hybrid for 2023 sowing in both the UK and Ireland. In PACTS trials it has shown itself to now be the earliest maturity hybrid in the Pioneer range. It delivers higher dry matter yields, higher grain yields and higher starch contents for this hybrid maturity. 

Hybrid Solutions

Primary End Use

Forage, biogas and grain

Hybrid Characteristics

  • Extra early maturity on both favourable and less favourable sites
  • Tall hybrid for this maturity
  • Produces very high starch content silage
  • High grain yields and has potential for combining
  • Early flowering
  • Very good eyespot resistance
  • Flint grain texture so lower levels of rumen degradable starch

Grown In The Open

  • Adapted to all maize growing sites in the UK & Ireland
  • Wide planting window due to its earliness of maturity
  • Timely harvesting will minimise yield loss associated with over maturity

Grown Using The Samco System

  • Extremely early maturity
  • Very high starch content
  • High grain yields
