Early Maize Varieties


Here at ForFarmers we have a range of early varieties (FAO 180-200).These varieties are usually sown mid April on only the best sites. Please browse our range below.

  • Suitable for all mainstream sites
  • Slower dry down results in a wider harvest window
  • Starch content is ideal for a TMR up to 70% maize silage
