CLL17

HIGH YIELDS AND BLAST RESISTANCE

High yield potential and industry-leading blast resistance are an essential combination for Coastal rice farmers today who need both characteristics in their rice seed to maximize profitability. Farmers get both with new CLL17 from Horizon Ag, a Louisiana-bred Clearfield® variety being released for the 2021 season. CLL17 has consistently out-yielded CL153, the top-planted Louisiana variety in recent years, in multi-year trials in the state. It has solid ratoon crop potential in addition to featuring outstanding resistance to blast. CLL17 also has proven to provide excellent milling yield and very good grain quality.

  • 0 Seed /lb is not an exact number; it is an average from multiple samples harvested over a wide geography.
  • 1 Seeding rate is a suggestion based on drill-seeding in ideal conditions and fungicide/insecticide treated seed. Planting non-treated seed is not recommended. Seeding rate should be increased by a minimum of 10 lbs/A when using non-treated seed, planting into a rough seedbed, water-seeding, high pH soils and soils with salinity issues.
  • 2 Nitrogen rate is a suggested rate based on a two-way split nitrogen application with the first application being applied on dry soil.
