  Product information is based on data from the CIMMYT South Asia 2019 Regional Trial (South Asia PP2 and 3) and 2020 and 2021 regional on-farm trials (ROFT20-1 and ROFT21-1). Actual performance will vary depending on a number of agronomic and environmental factors. 

AI = artificial infestation/inoculation
BLSB = Banded leaf and sheath blight
DT = Managed drought trial
FSR = Fusarium stalk rot
GDD = growing degree-days (°C)
Opt = optimal environment
RS = random stress trial
SC = single-cross
Turcicum Leaf Blight
WL = managed waterlogging trial
