CAP 444 NG produces up to three cobs per plant and produces good yields even under low plant populations. It has good standability and very dense grain.


It is a medium maturing variety with approximately 120-134 days to maturity. In terms of disease resistance, it is moderately resistant to Leaf Blight (H.t), Rust and most common maize diseases. This variety is not recommended in ar- eas with a high incidence of G.L.S unless a strict preventative spray programme is adhered to.


It has a yield potential of above 8mt per hectare and has out yielded major competitors in limit- ed trials to date. CAP 444 NG is very good under stressful drought conditions and well synchro- nized between silk emergence and pollen shedding.
