Variety Positioning

  • High yields (104% treated, 97% untreated) with very bold grain (79.4 kg/hl AHDB).
  • Suitable across the UK, excluding areas of high sterility risk until more information is available. It can be grown across heavy and light soils and has a wide drilling window mid-September through to the end of January. It also is an acceptable second wheat choice.
  • A high tillering variety of medium height (83 cm) and reasonably stiff straw (7 treated, 6 untreated). Its grassweed competitiveness is still being evaluated in Agrii trials. Medium-late maturity (+3).
  • Excellent disease resistance delivers one of the highest untreated yields in field trials. It shows good resistance against mildew (8.0), yellow rust (9.0), brown rust (8.0) and Septoria tritici (6.5). Not resistant to orange wheat blossom midge and moderately susceptible to fusarium ear blight.
