Dessert R78 is a MDMV resistant super sweet hybrid with medium maturity length. The plant is strong growing and highly adaptive. The variety’s fertility quotient is outstanding: almost all plants grow a standard corn-cob. Its adaptability, viral resistance and high fertility levels ensure that sown almost any time (from mid-April to early July) it yields reliably. Harvestability is flexible: it preserves sweetness even in an overripe condition and can be kept standing for a long time.
Dessert R78 is the tastiest member of our variety line. Its crop is extremely sweet and juicy, the kernels are of medium size. Primarily threshed product is suitable to be produced from this hybrid.
Dessert R78 is a high-yielding, flexibly harvestable hybrid with outstanding taste quality.

GROWING TECHNOLOGY CORNER POINTS
for the large-scale production of Dessert R78
TOPCORN Kft., 2021
- variety pairing (Dessert R78 + Jumbo)
- 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)
