New Obelix is a 93 day dual purpose silage or grain maize. Obelix is a hybrid that lives up to its name which means ‘pillar of strength’. Handles higher populations well due to its vertical plant architecture.
Plant at higher populations to maximise yield.
Best grown in various environments throughout New Zealand.
Growers looking for a maize hybrid that carries a heavy load should be growing Obelix. A strong plant with rapid dry down and lower stay green allows harvest early in shorter season areas or when faster feed is required.
