CLM04 is the first medium grain Clearfield variety released by the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture and is highly anticipated by farmers to help maximize profitability. Southern USA medium grain accounts for approximately 10% of the acreage in any given year and is dominated by non-herbicide tolerant Jupiter. CLM04 is competitive with Jupiter from a yield standpoint and has almost the exact same cereal chemistry. It reaches 50% heading in 86 days on average. CLM04 provides an improved blast resistance package relative to Jupiter and offers farmers the chance to combat red rice and grasses on long-term conventional medium grain production acres.
