Breeder: KWS UK Printable PDF
Type: Group 4 Hard Feed Pedigree: (Paragon x W109) x Belvoir

 

Variety Positioning

  • Kilburn has been in the market for a couple of years now and is the second most popular variety behind Mulika. Certainly capable of high yields for a spring wheat it seems to be best suited to the traditional spring drilling window. It is a hard feed wheat but does produce grain of a good Hagberg, specific weight and protein level.
  • Slightly later to mature than other spring wheats and also a bit taller so will need a good management programme.
  • Disease scores are pretty good with decent resistance to Yellow and Brown Rust and also Septoria. But it is not Midge resistant unlike Mulika and KWS Chilham.
