CZH142060 is an early-maturing, white-grain hybrid that has good yield potential under optimum conditions as well as under low P, low N, and acidic soil stress. It also has good disease resistance for diseases, namely GLS, TLB and rust.   General Information
  Adaptation/Agroecological zone 600-1500 masl
  Region Southern Africa
  Type of product Three-way Cross
  Year first announced 2016
      Grain Characteristics
Grain Yield   Grain color White
Grain yield (MEA) (HD) 10.13 t/ha   Grain texture Semi-dent
Grain yield (MEA) (OPT) 8.56 t/ha      
Grain yield (MEB) (OPT) 6.88 t/ha   Biotic Stress Performance
Grain yield (MED) (OPT) 4.12 t/ha   Turcicum leaf blight (TLB)  (1-9) 2.0
Grain yield (MEC) (RS) 4.12 t/ha   Rust (1-9) 2.2
Grain yield under low N stress 3.22 t/ha   Grey leaf spot (GLS)  (1-9) 3.0
Grain yield under Low P conditions 9.05 t/ha   Diseases were originally scored on a 1-5 scale but have been converted here to a 1-9 scale, where 1 = Highly resistant; 5 = Tolerant; 9 = Highly susceptible.
