Region: UK WIDE Type: Clubroot Hybrid

Variety Positioning

  • Added to the UK Recommended List last year for its outstanding yield and very high oil content. It was the highest gross output (98%) clubroot variety in the Agrii’s national trials network last year with high untreated yields (92%) and the highest oil content (46.1%) of any clubroot variety tested.
  • It has a relatively slow speed of development in the autumn and spring like Mentor. Of the clubroot tolerant varieties it is the first choice for the East and West region but probably less suited to the North because of its growth habit.
  • Relatively tall (154 cm) with a stiff canopy (8) and mid-maturity (5). It has good Light Leaf Spot resistance (6) but relatively weak on Phoma/Stem Canker (4), so this needs to be monitored and sprayed for.
