RAGT’s main selection criteria for forage maize varieties are high yield and earliness, with improvements to starch content, digestibility and metabolisable energy. Standing ability and disease resistance are also key.
RGT Oxxgood, now in its third year, continues to perform strongly in the field and is available for this coming season. It has performed consistently in trials, coping well with different seasons and is suitable for favourable and less favourable sites. RGT Duxxbury was available in limited quantities for 2017 and is certainly one to watch in 2018. It has excellent quality, including high starch levels and good digestibility, and retains a good yield score despite being one of the earliest in official trials.
RGT Agiraxx, our most popular variety, will be available again this season. RGT Bradley and RGT Exxtens have gained a reputation for reliability and maintain a loyal following.
