Variety Positioning

  • A very high output hard feed wheat and Agrii’s third biggest selling wheat variety. High treated (104%) and untreated (93%) yields that can be attributed to its good disease resistance and bold grain (76.9 kg/hl AHDB). More suited for East and West regions with yield tailing off in the North and best not grown in Scotland or other areas of high sterility risk. It can be grown on heavy and lighter soil types, but it should always be grown as a first wheat as its second wheat performance is relatively poor.
  • Graham can multi-task across the drilling window. It has a relatively slow speed of development in the autumn and is ideal for early drilling, yet it moves relatively quickly in the spring. It has a very prostrate autumn growth habit with medium to high tillering capacity so seed rates can be reduced. Agrii late-drill trials show that it continues to yield well through to the end of January. Average competitiveness against grassweeds. Moderately tall, very stiff (6 untreated, 7 treated) and early to mature (-1).
  • It has good disease resistance against yellow rust (7.1), Septoria tritici (6.0) and moderately resistant to fusarium ear but weak against blight brown rust (3.9) and not resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
