P8200 is a tall, large stature, intermediate maturity hybrid ideally suited to cultivation on a wide range of sites under film. It is also suitable for sowing on favourable sites in the open. P8200 has given very high dry matter yields of silage with good starch content. A key feature of P8200 is that the stover dries down quickly once it reaches physiological maturity. P8200 has shown notable performance consistency in the UK and Ireland over many different seasons.
