Breeder: Secobra, France, UK Agent: Agrii
Type: Hard Feed Pedigree: Evolution x Stigg

Variety Positioning

  • A new hard feed variety that has performed well in National List trials but not taken through to the UK Recommended List. Reasonably high yields (102% treated, 84% untreated) and average specific weight (76 kg/hl).
  • Suitable across the UK (excluding areas of high sterility risk) but later maturity (+4 days) will probably limit interest further north. It is best sown in the main drilling window and as a first wheat until more information is available.
  • Relatively tall, stiff straw (7 treated, 6 untreated). Its grassweed competitiveness is still being evaluated in Agrii trials at Stow Longa.
  • Outstanding disease resistance with high ratings for yellow rust (9.0), brown rust (7.4), Septoria tritici (7.5) and mildew (7.1). Not resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
