Delta is well-suited to average growing conditions. A little extra management will produce good returns.

Planting: Plant Delta at average to above average populations for the area. Dryland conditions are preferred to irrigated conditions with this hybrid. She handles stress very well.

Early Season: Delta has strong emergence in cold soils. She grows quickly at the beginning of the season and will respond to foliar fungicide applications.

Mid Season: Delta may root lodge while the roots catch up to the fast upper plant growth. She is less prone to root lodging in drier conditions that force the roots to grow deeper.

Late Season: Delta stands well in the fall to wait for the combine.

Harvest: Delta is high yielding and produces high quality grain.
