New CLL18 is a University of Arkansas bred variety that has consistently outyielded CLL16 by about 5% in Arkansas trials. CLL18 does not offer the level of blast resistance of CLL16 and should be planted in areas not prone to blast. Since CLL18 is earlier maturing, it is a good planting partner with CLL16, allowing farmers to stretch out harvest. Limited seed quantities will be available in 2023.
