Breeder: Elsoms Breeder PDF
Type: Group 4, Distilling and Export Pedigree: Cassius x Viscount

Variety Positioning

  • A distilling variety with excellent physical grain characteristics and a sister line to Elicit, sharing the same parents. Ideally suited to the North and Scotland but can be grown elsewhere as a soft feed or for uks export.
  • Suitable for all soil types with very good performance on lighter soils. Relatively fast speed of development and very competitive against grassweeds. Best drilled in the main drilling window and not suited to early or very late drilling.
  • Short, stiff straw (untreated 8, treated 8), and is a good second wheat choice. Medium maturity (+1).
  • Good resistance to yellow rust (8.0) but weak against Septoria tritici (4.1) and brown rust (4.3). It is moderately susceptible to fusarium ear blight but resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
