"SSW 2001MR is a very high quality supersweet white that incorporates this genetics. Strong 7' plants produce 8" ears that are set at 26". The slightly tapered ears have bright white kernels that fill the ear with 16-18 rows. The excellent husk package offers good protection to the ears and has very attractive flag leafs. Resistant to the new strains of rust (Rp1G, Rp1I) and intermediate resistance to NCLB and SCLB."
