Variety Positioning

  • 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 this year and Agrii’s biggest selling clubroot variety last autumn. Valued for its consistent yield and very high oil content, it has yielded well in Agrii trials over the past two years (100% treated) with the highest oil content (45.9%) of any clubroot variety tested.
  • It has a reasonable speed of development in the autumn (7) and quick grow away in the spring (8). It is moderate height (139 cm), stiff (7) with excellent lodging resistance (8) and medium maturity (5).
  • Reasonable light leaf spot resistance (5) but weak against phoma/stem canker (4), so this needs to be monitored in the autumn and spring and sprayed for, as appropriate. Excellent tolerance of Verticillium wilt (8).
