Variety Positioning

  • Dekalb’s leading clubroot variety that has performed well in independent trials and , as a result, it has been widely grown over the past three years particularly in Scotland.
  • Similar gross output (92%) to Crome but with a faster speed of development in the autumn which is an important consideration especially in a difficult autumn. It produces a very high seed yield with high oil content (45.3%).
  • Relatively tall but with good lodging resistance (8), early to flower (6) and mature (6). With average disease resistance against the two key diseases, Light Leaf Spot (5) and Phoma/Stem Canker (5)so a robust fungicide programmes is recommended. It also carries the trait for pod shatter resistance.
