Early planting is critical for higher yields through increased light interception, and can be further maximized by planting longer MG’s. However, variety selection heavily based upon the MG is not the “silver bullet” for increasing yields. Yet, it does provide a strong “potential” for higher yields with no additional dollars spent, especially in early planting situations. Therefore, growers should give consideration to MG when selecting varieties, but past local and regional performance, disease package, scn-resistance, etc. should also strongly be considered.
