Type: Group 2 Bread Pedigree: Sparrow x Azurite


Variety Positioning

  • A new introduction and one that should deliver higher yields than Mulika in both the late autumn and spring slots. Yield has been as good as any spring wheat in the late autumn slot and will be a good choice for those looking for an alternative to Mulika. Good grain characters but will not fetch the same premiums as Mulika as it is classified as a Group 2 variety by NABIM.
  • Slightly later to mature than Mulika and although a bit stiffer, will need a good PGR programme from a late autumn drilling.
  • Very similar to Mulika for disease resistance and on Agrii data better for Yellow Rust than KWS Cochise, which is also new into the market. Brown Rust though needs watching. Midge resistant.
