FAO grain 260 | silage 270 | grain type 2


  • excellent dry matter yield
  • use: silage, grain, biogas
  • fast early vigor
  • very good lodging resistance


ALBIREO, is an outstanding variety in the early to mid-early maturity range which guarantees excellent dry matter yields and good yield stability over several years. It can be used as grain, for silage or for biogas production. Thanks to its great environmental stability, ALBIREO was attributed our KLIMAFIT label. Its fast early vigour combined with early maturity and very good lodging resistance are agronomically advantageous characteristics. Used as silage or biogas maize, ALBIREO achieves high fresh matter yields thanks to its impressive plant height, medium starch contents and very good energy contents
