Variety Positioning

  • Increasing its market share of the Group 1 milling market due to disease issues in KWS Zyatt and Skyfall. Strong support from the millers due to its excellent baking characteristics and is accepted by domestic and export markets.
  • Best grown as a first wheat on heavy soils and drilled in the main drilling window through to the end of October. Average competitive against grass weeds. Short and relatively stiff straw (7 treated, 7 untreated) and medium maturity (0).
  • Brown rust (2.4) is a major weakness but yellow rust (9.0), Septoria tritici (6.8) are good and moderately resistant to fusarium ear blight. Not resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
