HT-7240 is not bullet proof for anything but is good at everything. It is an easy choice for top yields on productive ground, but also for tougher drought prone soils. Some will plant it for an optional hybrid for grain or silage as the need dictates. Perfect for variable soils. Perhaps the best go-anywhere performance hybrid.
