- One of the highest yielding varieties in Agrii trials (104%) over the past three years with good untreated yields (84%) and reasonable physical grain quality (76.3 kg/hl, AHDB). Its performance continues to be strong despite its yellow rust resistance declining significantly over the past year.
- Suitable for all regions of the UK and all soil types. Best drilled from early October onwards, through to the end of December and it is a good second wheat too. It moves quite slowly in the spring which hampers its ability to compete against grassweeds, so in reality drill in fields with low-risk of grassweeds or drill later.
- Medium height and average stiffness (5 untreated, 6 treated) so it will need a full PGR programme. It has relatively early maturity (0).
- Average disease resistance for brown rust (5.0), Septoria tritici (6.2), susceptible to fusarium ear blight and its resistance to yellow rust (2.5) appears to have broken down. It is resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
