|Regional Suitability: UK wide||Type: TuYV Conventional|
- One of only three conventional candidates on the UK Recommended List with high gross output (107% UK, 109% E&W and 104% North) with high oils (45.1%). From the same breeder as Anastasia and tested for the first time this season in Agrii trials it already shown to have good autumn vigour (7), albeit in a kinder autumn, and a significant step up from Aspire which is relatively slow.
- Suitable for all regions of the UK and all soil types. It produces a relatively short canopy (133 cm), stiff (8.4) and good lodging resistance (9) and shows relatively early maturity (6). The breeder claims a similar strong spring regrowth to that of Aardvark that is useful to reduce the impact of CSFB larvae.
- Good all-round disease resistance with Light Leaf Spot (6.3) and Phoma/Canker resistance (5.6). Like the other conventional types from Limagrain, the Verticillium tolerance is expected to be reasonable but this will be confirmed later this season.
