A66 Grain Sorghum Hybrid

A high yielding, mid-maturing all rounder grain sorghum that's also highly adaptable

A66 is the ‘go to’ grain sorghum hybrid for farmers who want security. 

With a safe package of traits, A66 is an honest hybrid that offers ease-of-harvest.

Relying on next generation Pioneer​® A-series genetics, A66 offers traits that are recognised for their higher yield.

Widely adaptable across all farming systems and multiple environments, A66 is a  tough hybrid providing growers with production stability, all-round agronomics and a strong disease profile.

With its large grain size and vibrant bright red colour, you'll notice the Pioneer difference with A66.

Proven through exhaustive scientific trials

A66 is a hybrid sorhum that's evolved and proven from an initial three years of research-site testing, then advanced to our Seed Technology Research In Key Environments (STRIKE) trial program. There are about 40 STRIKE trial locations across the country each year.

STRIKE trials are replicated and randomised with diagonal check hybrids entered throughout the trial, ensuring the data is accurate and not affected by paddock variation or other variables.
