Oláh, B. (2020). Comparison of early maturity maize hybrids in function of the average yield in year 2012. Economica, 7(3), 215-221. https://doi.org/10.47282/ECONOMICA/2014/7/3/4451

The main goal of this scientific paper is the comparison of outstanding hybrids of the three largest, world-leading maize hybrid seed developers and suppliers (Monsanto, Pioneer and Syngenta) in function of the average yield and grain moisture. The author’s investigations were executed on a 600 hectare farm in the south of the Békés County in the extreme drought year of 2012. The examined hybrids were the DKC 4590 (FAO 360), the P9494 (FAO 390) and the NK Lucius (FAO
330). All three hybrids fall under the early maturity group (FAO 300-399).
