Dessert R72 is a very early maturing (1-2 days after Spirit) super sweet hybrid. Its seeds are usually strong in vigor with a strong initial development even in the case of early sowing. The plant is MDMV resistant, medium in stature, and has excellent root strength.
Despite maturing early, its productivity is outstanding: it is competitive with mid-seasonal varieties! Also suitable for intermittent sowing. It must be isolated from other types of varieties (eg Spirit)!
The threshed product of Dessert R72 is of a quality similar to that of Dessert 73.
Dessert R72 is a high-yielding super-sweet variety; for early, intermittent sowing

TOPCORN Kft., 2021
- 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)
