Excellent pre-harvest characteristics like non-lodging in heavy wind prone areas, V- shaped leaves format good to allow intercropping and excellent cob tips-cover to avoid rotting whenever there is rain during tail end of season. Post-harvest qualities make these varieties a big attraction to many growers both large and small scale across the Kenyan and East African farmer landscape.
