AnastasiaVariety Positioning

  • Anastasia is firmly established as the leading conventional variety in the North. However, its Northern listing has not limited interest elsewhere as it performs well right across the country and across all soil types. Best drilled in August in the main drilling window but also suitable for early-September drilling if conditions remain favourable.
  • Very vigorous in the autumn, hardy over winter and appears darker green in the spring compared with most other varieties. Moderately quick to grow away in the spring to produce a moderately tall (149 cm), stiff canopy (8) with mid-flowering (6) and mid-maturity (5).
  • A decent disease profile with especially good Light Leaf Spot resistance (7) that still makes it the good choice for the North. In the South it is important to monitor and spray for Phoma/Stem Canker (5) especially in smaller and less well-developed crops which are more prone to the disease. Good tolerance to Verticillium Wilt.
