AnastasiaVariety Positioning

  • Anastasia is firmly established as the leading conventional variety in the North. Even the latest candidate varieties are very similar in yield so Anastasia will continue to have a following for some time yet. Its Northern listing has not limited interested elsewhere as it performs well right across the country.
  • Excellent performance across all soils. Best drilled in August in the main drilling window but also suitable for early September drilling. Very vigorous in the autumn and 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, stiff canopy with mid-flowering and mid-maturity.
  • A decent disease profile with especially good Light Leaf Spot resistance that still make it the number one choice for the North. In the South it is important to monitor and spray mfor Phoma especially in smaller and less well developed crops which are more prone to the disease.
