Variety Positioning

  • Agrii’s second biggest selling variety with consistent high yields every year for the past five years. High gross output (114%), high untreated yields (96%) and a high oil content (45.93%) make this a significant variety in the Agrii portfolio. It is one of the highest yielding varieties without the TuYV resistance trait.
  • Suitable for all soils and all regions. Its official northern recommendation should not limit the variety and it has been proven in Agrii trials to perform across the UK especially in cabbage stem flea beetle affected areas because of its vigorous growth habit.
  • Consistently one of the most vigorous hybrids in the autumn (6) and quick to move away in the spring (7). Assessments in spring 2019 showed that it was one of the best varieties to cope with severe flea beetle larval infestations.
  • Tall (145 cm), stiff canopy (8), average lodging risk (7), with average lodging resistance (6.5), and medium maturity (4). Excellent disease resistance with light leaf spot (6) and RLM7 stem canker resistance (7) and one of the best varieties to tolerate Verticillium wilt (7). Carries the pod shatter resistance trait.
