Hi Corn is the combination of two hybrid varieties with complementary earliness to increase the number of days for pollination and thus reduce the risk of hot weather affecting the viability of the pollen. More pollen guarantees better fertilisation and therefore more grain per hectare.

Crop losses caused by heat waves and drought have tripled over the last fifty years in Europe. To address global warming and drought, Lidea offers Hi Corn. 

This innovative solution combines two complementary varieties to sow at the same time in order to secure flowering, a critical period in the development of a corn plant. 

Sowing two different corn varieties reduces risks resulting from variation in soil and climate conditions and loss of pollen viability, by extending the pollination period. Increased pollen ensures fertilisation and guarantees increased yield for farmers.

The hybrids in the Hi Corn solution have different maturity combinations, based on earliness and other characteristics, such as lodging tolerance, grain drydown, etc. to meet farmers’ needs.
