|Type: Group 4, Hard Feed||Pedigree: (Equinox X Charger) X Defender|
- A hard feed wheat with consistently high yields (101%), bold grain and relatively early maturity (+1). It has given very consistent performance over the past eight years and is still the highest yielding Winter Wheat in the UK verified by the Guinness Book of Records.
- Suitable across all regions of the UK and all soil types with particularly good results on lighter soils and drought conditions. Best drilled from late September and performs well when drilled late. Consistent as a second wheat but eyespot will need attention. Average competitiveness against grassweeds.
- Medium height with relatively stiff straw in most situations but use a good PGR programme under more fertile conditions. Relatively early to mature.
- Septoria tritici is its main weakness (3.5) and brown rust is starting to be more evident (4.6) but it retains excellent yellow rust (8.9) and mildew (6.6) resistance. It is not resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
