GDU (Growing Degree Unit):

Although maturity of one corn product relative to another remains reasonably consistent, the actual number of calendar days from planting to any given point of plant development varies with temperature, day length, rate and date of planting, soil fertility and other environmental factors. All GDU values calculated are from the time of planting.

 

Rating Scale:

1 = Excellent        9 = Poor
The ratings are approximate and should not be considered as absolute. Based on Monsanto conducted trials relative to other brand corn.

Diplodia Ear Rot Rating Scale:

AA = Above Average
A = Average
BA = Below Average

Herbicide Class Ratings:

Ratings are based on observations and research using herbicides at and above labeled rates to simulate extreme environmental conditions, misapplication and adverse soil pH or organic content.
A = Acceptable
Either no adverse effects from the corn product/herbicide combination were noted on any traits or only slight damage could be noted under adverse conditions or herbicide application at higher than label rates.
C = Caution
The corn product/herbicide combination is usually not a problem if sprayed according to label directions, but can result in plant height reduction, stand loss and suspected yield loss under very adverse environmental conditions, high rates, or extreme soil pH levels or organic content. Use drop nozzle spraying for postemergence herbicides or plant in warm soils for incorporated herbicides to avoid interactions.
W = Warning
Not advised - this corn product/herbicide combination should not be used under any circumstance.
