Variety Positioning

  • Another Recommended List Candidate from Monsanto that has performed exceptionally
    well in Agrii’s trials in 2017. Very limited seed this autumn but likely to be a significant variety next year in autumn 2019.
  • Fast in the autumn and spring, excellent disease resistance and early maturity means thatit is likely to become the successor to DK Exalte.
  • Like DK Exalte, it appears to have excellent tolerance of Verticillium wilt which isparticularly important in the Eastern counties. This and its excellent Light leaf Spotresistance give it the edge over DK Expedient which is at a similar stage in official trials.
