- Mid-ranking in terms of yields (100%) and grain quality (75 kg/hl). Very consistent over the past six years but in 2019 its resistance to Yellow Rust has reduced significantly and its untreated yield has fallen (now 73%).
- Performs well across soil types with good results on light soils. Reasonable second wheat performance helped by the Pch1 Eyespot resistance. Suitable for drilling from mid-September through to the end of December. It has medium tillering capacity so keep seed rates up but, in spite of this, it remains very competitive against grass-weeds. Relatively tall with decent stiff straw (6 untreated, 7 treated) and mid-late maturity (+2).
- Good resistance to Septoria tritici (6.7), average Brown Rust (5.2) and Mildew (5.1) and pay attention to Yellow Rust (2.4) which requires a robust programme to control it. It is susceptible to Fusarium Ear Blight and not resistant to Orange Wheat Blossom Midge.
