  • R = Glyphosate tolerant
  • GT = Agrisure® GT Glyphosate tolerant
  • Silage type:
    • LF = Leafy hybrid
    • LFL = Leafy Floury Hybrid
    • DP = Dual Purpose Hybrid
    • SP = Silage Specific Hybrid
  • DBR or E hybrid ending in 2 R:

Caution: Herbicide sensitivity,
​​​​​​​Avoid post-emergent application of Group 27 & 28 herbicides (ex. Converge®, Callisto®, Impact™) on Leafy Silage hybrids. Leafy hybrids have shown increased injury after postemergent
application of Group 27 & 28 herbicides in comparison to other hybrids.
