Early maturity for more cultivation safety


  • Early variety of maturity group 000
  • Extremely short growing season allows cultivation as intercrop in southern regions
  • Really good initial development, very good standability and reliabel, stable harvest
  • Dense pod setting for a very good threshing capability
  • Very early flowering and early maturity for reliabel cultivation in northern regions
  • With the cultivation of SUNRISE, the crop rotation can be extended
  • Within the scope of the Greening in Germany, legumes can be considered with a factor of 0.7
  • Dark navel color

Cultivation recommendations:

Recommended sowing rate 70 grains/m², approx. 110 -120 kg/ha
Sowing depth Light soils 3 - 4 cm; Heavy soils 2 cm
Sowing period As early as possible in the spring from a soil temperature of 10 ° C (from the beginning of May)
Fertilization Basic fertilization with phosphorus, potash and magnesium after nutrient removal. At 30 dt/ha yield, this is about 45 kg P2O5/ha, 50 kg K2O/ha and 15 kg MgO/ha
Crop protection Mechanical or chemical weed control. Fungicides as required
Sowing method Sowing with a row spacing of 12 - 15 cm for a fast row closing
Harvest Mid-September to October (harvest with an ear lifter is recommended); Food soy at 14 - 18% moisture, fodder soy at 13% moisture (very deep harvest, because the pod are very low)
