MAKRO is medium flowering and late maturing allowing farmers to spread their harvest load. MAKRO is a relatively tall variety and although it has very good stem characteristics it may benefit from the use of a PGR.
Why choose a hybrid for the spring? 
Hybrids offer consistency of performance and reliability over conventional varieties. Hybrid vigour allows plants to establish quickly and be more resilient especially in difficult growing seasons. This vigour allows increased flexibility with sowing date.
Hybrids also have the ability to utilise nutrients more efficiently. Trials have proven that they generally outperform conventional varieties, in respect to yield and their genetic stability provides high oil content. 
Pack Size
MAKRO will be supplied in packs of 2.1 million seeds. This will be sufficient to sow 3ha. As with autumn sown hybrids, a lower seed rate is required for MAKRO. It should ideally be planted at 70 seeds per m². 
Seed should be sown when soils have warmed up, in the first three weeks of April. This will give the seeds the best opportunity to germinate and grow. If drilling commences outside this sowing window then higher seed rates should be applied.
