Variety Positioning

  • Hacker has one of the highest specific weights (70 kg/hl) available and one of the lowest screening losses. Its best performance has been in the West (101%) but has also found favour in the North (99%).
  • Medium height (72 cm), one of the stiffest varieties (8 treated, 8 untreated) and excellent resistance to necking and brackling (9). All highly desirable characteristics and, to top it off, it also has early maturity.
  • Good mildew (8) resistance, average brown rust (5) but its Rhynchosporium (5) resistance is slightly weaker than most varieties so needs watching. Moderate susceptibility to net blotch.
