Bayer increasing crop sustainability with short-stature corn hybrid

Kelly Gillespie shows the difference in height of short corn vs. regular corn, noting that a sprayer boom clears the short-corn at full maturity.

Next year, Bayer Crop Science will commercially launch the Smart Corn System, powered by a new corn hybrid that is 30% shorter than the average corn plant.

Bayer’s Kelly Gillespie tells Brownfield shorter stalks make it less susceptible to green snap, proven by test plots that happened to be in the path of the 2020 derecho.
