CLM04

MEDIUM GRAIN RICE SEED BRED FOR OUTSTANDING YIELDS AND QUALITY.

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.

  • 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.
