- There continues to be strong demand for varieties with clubroot tolerance. This may reflect more cases of clubroot driven by the acidic soils in the North, stubble turnips in mixed farming areas or other brassicas in the rotation e.g. in cover crops.
- is the most widely grown clubroot variety and Agrii’s biggest selling clubroot variety. Valued for its consistent yield and very high oil content, it has yielded well in Agrii trials over the past two years (96% treated, 87% untreated) with the highest oil content (45.4%) of any clubroot variety tested.
- It has a reasonable speed of development in the autumn (5) but still much faster than Crocodile (4) which is slightly higher yielding. It is also relatively quick to grow away in the spring (6) to produce a moderately tall canopy (139 cm), stiff (8) with good lodging resistance (9) and medium-late maturity (4).
- Reasonable light leaf spot resistance (5) but relatively weak on phoma/stem canker (4), so this needs to be monitored and sprayed for. Excellent tolerance of Verticillium wilt.
