|Region: UK Wide||Type: High Erucic (HEAR) Hybrid|
- Oil from High Erucic Acid Rapeseed (HEAR) has a variety of industrial applications. Rocca is Agrii’s leading HEAR variety that has proven attractive especially in the North for its vigorous growth habit, improved light leaf spot resistance (7) and early maturity. Suitable for all soil types and best drilled in the main drilling window.
- Medium height but it requires a robust PGR programme as it has only moderate stem stiffness. Average phoma/stem canker resistance, so monitor for this disease and spray as appropriate.
If growers want to move back into ‘00’ or HOLL contracts in the future then ensure an appropriate gap between oilseed rape crops and consider using Clearfield oilseed rape.
