PETROSCHKA is a newly registered forage maize variety. The mid to early silage maize is in german offical trials. The mixed flint/dent maize could be used as a quality maize for dairy cows and cattle rearing as farmers get very high energy and starch yields per hectare. This makes it a very economically variety especially in current times with low milk prices. The leafy variety is very effective in creating ground shading. PETROSCHKA can also be used as a grain maize.

PETROSCHKA is packed in 50,000 seed bags with Thiram and Mesurol treatment.
