Variety Positioning

  • A high yielding variety with medium length straw and decently stiff untreated.
  • Grain quality fine HFN 216 and specific weight 76.9 and good suitability for distilling, biscuits and uks.
  • A decent disease package with reasonable mildew, yellow rust, brown rust and tritici plus Elicit is resistant to orange wheat blossom midge with a maturity score +1.
  • Elicit has yielded well on both heavy and lighter soils, plus its second wheat performance has been decent.
  • Importantly Elicit has been trialled for three years in the Agrii crop competition work and has been very competitive. Therefore, in a grassweed situation where the risk of med/high populations are possible – drilling dates should still be later into October, but Elicit will certainly help by being strongly competitive.
