Variety Positioning

  • A new Recommended List Candidate and tested by Agrii in 2017 where it was in the top
    three hybrids for gross output.
  • Fast development in the autumn and the fastest variety to grow away in the spring. There is good evidence to suggest that this can be particularly useful in crops infested withCabbage Stem Flea Beetle larvae. Monsanto are planning to establish a form of
    establishment guarantee with the variety so it could have significant uptake in the East and West region.
  • Average Light Leaf Spot resistance will limit interest further north but excellent Stem Canker resistance from the RLM7 gene. It also has the pod shatter resistant trait.
  • It has shown only average tolerance of Verticillium wilt in Agrii’s trials in 2017.
