Variety Positioning

  • Missed recommendation by a small margin but has something a little different to offer with its short, stiff straw and when put under tough testing in our lodging trials there were only two left standing under the highest of pressure, Grafton and KWS Parkin.
  • However, KWS Parkin should not be drilled as early as Grafton was as it moves quicker, so not before third week September.
  • Decent enough disease scores for mildew, yellow rust, brown rust and tritici.
  • Looking early for maturity.
  • Nice grain quality for a feed variety HFN 259 and specific weight 76.3,
  • Not resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
