Variety Positioning

  • From their French Momont programme, this group 2 variety clearly has a different parental background, which currently scores a very strong tritici resistance, yellow rust and brown rust, with subsequently very high untreated yields – now that is a strong package!
  • Grain quality scores good with HFN 297, specific weight 78.4, but with lower protein 12.6, however with provisional ukp it will be very marketable.
  • With relatively stiff straw untreated and early to mature.
  • KWS Extase appears to be well adapted across soil types but particularly useful (limited data) on light soils. In addition, there is every indication that it performs fine as a second wheat.
  • However, it is a fast developing variety that is best drilled from last week September onwards through to the end of January. It is not suitable for early drilling.
  • Not resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
  • A very nice variety which will take a significant share of the market going forward….
