EMMERSON is FIRST CHOICE for both Favourable and Less Favourable sites on the BSPB/NIAB Descriptive List of Forage Maize for 2018

EMMERSON is a breakthrough in maize breeding giving ultra-early maturity without the yield penalty associated with shorter-season hybrids.

Bred by Limagrain specifically for the UK EMMERSON is particularly suited to more marginal sites where it’s ultra-early maturity combined with superb yields make it a “must grow” variety.

EMMERSON is ideal where early harvest or later drilling window options are required
