Seventeen new Optimum AQUAmax hybrids, for drought-stressed environments, have been released by Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont business.

The hybrids are in the 96- to 116-day comparative relative maturities.

“Optimum AQUAmax hybrids delivered strong yields for growers in a trying year,” says Monica Patterson, Pioneer marketing manager. “Hybrids performed well in areas of drought as well as geographies that encountered adequate moisture throughout the growing season.”
