|Type: Group 4, Hard Feed||Pedigree: Timaru x W151|
- A solid variety with very bold grain and good all round disease resistance. Excellent grain quality with huge HFN (321s) and specific weight (80.8 kg/hl, AHDB), which is the highest of any variety in Agrii trials or on the Recommended List.
- Suitable for all soil types and regions and, like JB Diego, it is a very stable variety. It is best drilled from mid-September onwards although it can be drilled from the end of the first week of September further north. It has performed well in Agrii late drilled trials through to the end of December. Best grown as a first wheat as its second wheat performance has been somewhat variable.
- Medium to high tillering capacity with average competitiveness against grassweeds and moderately late maturity (+3).
- Straw of moderate height and stiff (8 untreated, 9 treated), plus a good disease profile for yellow rust (8.9), and Septoria tritici (6.1) but brown rust (4.1) needs watching carefully. Moderate resistance to fusarium ear blight, but not resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
