White Hybrid Maize

CAP 9001

CAP 9001 is widely adapted for all Southern African conditions. It is tolerant to most maize diseases in Southern and Eastern Africa.

It has a high potential of yielding over 14 mt/ha in certain areas of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. It is also adapted to other areas with reasonable rainfall expectations.

It has excellent disease resistance making this hybrid suited to high disease pressure areas.

Capstone Seeds recommends that in order to maximise the yield, one should plant early.

CAP 9001 is a tall late hybrid south of 26 latitude and medium maturing as you travel north of this. It has high yields under irrigation and good performance under drylands conditions.
