We planted Country Gentleman last summer after having a lot of problems with earworms in a different variety of corn. The tighter husks on Country Gentleman really do help control earworm infestations. The yield was pretty good considering the rows weren't set up well for good pollination (live and learn). We'll be planting this variety again this year for sure.
