P1756 Corn Hybrid

Full Season | Grain / Silage

A unique Australian-bred corn developed for processing markets or high-quality silage

Pioneer® P1756 is a 117CRM corn hybrid uniquely bred in Australia for the Australian corn processing market and the Asian export markets.

P1756 exhibits excellent stalk strength and is suited to both dryland and irrigation areas.

Since its release in 2014 P1756 has quickly grown to be the number one processing corn hybrid in the Australian market winning the Australian Maize Association National Crop competition 2016-2017 in the irrigated category.

It can also be used as a feed grain and makes for high-quality silage.

If you plan to  produce silage from P1756 corn, be sure to retain as much of the nutrient by complementing your feed with one of the Pioneer inoculants designed for the job.

The type and number of acid-producing bacteria present in your pasture or crop will influence the amount of dry matter and nutrients you lose in the ensiling process.

Pioneer® brand ​product ​inoculants provide the right bacteria in ideal numbers for a fast, efficient fermentation. They help lock-in nutrients and dry matter so your livestock can produce more milk or meat from every tonne of pasture or crop you ensile.

“P1756 held its grain quality quite well, in a year that’s been very tough. It's probably proven itself to be the pick of the varieties as far as keeping its grain quality.”
