DEKALB Performance


DEKALB® brand corn offers the genetics, traits and tools needed to drive success during the growing season. Take on any challenge by combining your determination with the unmatched performance potential of DEKALB corn.

Foliar Fungicide Response

When disease pressures hit, you need a corn hybrid that responds well to foliar fungicide applications. DEKALB hybrids are proven to increase yield potential when paired with a fungicide like Delaro® Complete.


Greensnap, or brittle snap, can snap immature corn plants in half, significantly impacting yield potential. DEKALB hybrids are bred to stand up to strong winds, protecting them from snapping before developing and becoming lignified.

Disease Resistance

When diseases take hold, they can wreak havoc on corn plants and yields. DEKALB hybrids are specifically bred to resist corn diseases. And for even more protection, our hybrids are treated with Acceleron® Seed Applied Solutions ELITE with Enhanced Disease Control, stopping diseases early.

Root and Stalk Strength

Strong roots and stalks mean strong yield potential. Weaker crops can lead to higher moisture during harvesting and less grain fill. DEKALB hybrids offer only the most robust crops, standing up where others fall short.


Without adequate water, crop development is hindered and can lead to plant death altogether. That’s why DEKALB brand bred hybrids to maximize their hydro-efficiency in drought conditions.
