BREAKTHRU to Higher Yields-Thicker Planting- Shorter Stalks-Tougher Shanks- Greater Disease Tolerance Three years ago, DeKalb introduced its now famous family of XL Breakthru hybrids. This new generation of single cross and 3-way hybrids came from a remarkable Breakthru in research and breeding, and produced a correspond-, ing Breakthru in performance and yield under the stresses of thicker planting, additional fertilizer and continuous corn. The most demanding research methods selected inbreds capable of transmitting the ability to fight disease and insects and add bushels at higher populations.
