“Rapid Fire maize has again performed well for us producing excellent cobs, and has provided superb cover. Last year it stood so well until the end of the season we had to drive over strips during the latter part of the season. This shoot is very exposed to the wind and Rapid Fire maize still always performs well for us. We apply plenty of farmyard manure and then a top-up fertiliser with the seed. I believe that soil tests, fertiliser and herbicides are all vital to achieve success in growing a good crop of game maize, which is an integral part of holding birds for our 300 – 400 bird days”.
