CMS Comet home CMS Comet
- Dual purpose hybrid delivering high yields of both grain and silage
- Good staygreen and excellent rust tolerance
- Deep kernels with a medium to soft grain texture
CMS Comet is an excellent silage or grain option with a CRM of 92, giving growers impressive results in the Lower North Island and South Island. It has a long husk cover and semi-flex ear to go with its'medium-tall stature. A high Common Rust resistance score means this is a great choice where this disease is a concern.
CMS Comet is suited as a full maturity silage hybrid for the South Island and a mid-maturity choice for the lower North Island. For grain, it will be a feature for those growers looking for a robust and consistent early maturity variety.

“With a well filled tankard type cob of deep soft textured grain Comet not only produces high quality silage but also early maturing grain. I would not hesitate in recommending Comet to growers.”
