DP 1948 B3XF

Erratic rainfall can create challenging growing conditions in these regions. Having a strong variety that can stand up to the harsh, dryland conditions is a must.

Proven Performance in South Texas, the Rolling Plains and the Southern High Plains

DP 1948 B3XF was actually an NPE favorite in the 2017 NPE trials. When it didn’t get released as a new variety, NPE growers weren’t shy about letting us know that we missed an opportunity. So we put it back into testing in 2018 and sure enough, they were right. And we didn’t make the same mistake twice.
