Best where standability is a frequent problem--Vigor Root 550 sets a deep, strong root system to reduce problems from wind and drought. Vigor Root 550 is one of our best all-around varieties. Deep green leaves and clean stalks make this variety our most eye-appealing. Long, yellow ears pick clean of husk, which is loose to promote fast dry-down. We recommend a population up to 26M for best results. Vigor Root 550 responds well to lots of animal manure and is equally good for cribbing or shelling(but not as good for ensilage). This rugged, high yielding variety matures in 105-110 days and is classed as a mid-season. It performs best in the North and Upper Midwest. If you farm north or Interstate-70, then give this variety serious consideration! Seed is treated with Captan/Nu-gro to promote early seedling vigor. A full bag contains 80M kernels and weighs about 50 pounds. (Additional shipping charges will be added to orders of 50 pounds or more during checkout.)
