Dessert R68 is an extra early maturing (1-2 days before Spirit) super sweet hybrid recommended for season-opening test operations. Plant is MDMV resistant, has strong growth, but short in stature.
Its yield potential is similar to that of Dessert 73, provided there is steady water supply and good nutrient provision. Must be isolated from other variety types (eg. Spirit)!
Dessert R68’s threshed product consists of beautifully coloured, medium size round corn kernels that are very sweet and tasty.
Dessert R68 is an extra early maturing, season-opening super sweet variety for trial use.

GROWING TECHNOLOGY CORNER POINTS
for the large-scale production of Dessert R68
TOPCORN Kft., 2021
- variety pairing
- with an even surface
(» better soil tracking » more uniform sowing depth » rapid and uniform emergence »
» consistent crop = bigger yields + less deduction by processors!).
The optimum sowing depth is determined by taking into account the following factors:
(or: leavening irrigation / with linear only! / within 24-48 hours!)
The initial rapid and steady development should be helped by all means:
(Initially with a lower water dose /10-15 mm/, but more often)
