- KWS Sassy has full MBC approval for distilling and has taken a reasonable share of the Scottish market. The variety represents just over 9% of the Scottish certified seed market.
- Agrii Northern trials over the last two years has put yields (98% treated, 88% untreated) a bit below those of Laureate, but in official trials they show very similar yields (103-4%). KWS Sassy produces a grain of a high specific weight (68.4 kg/hl) and relatively low screening losses.
- Relatively tall straw (78cm) that is weaker (5 treated, 6 treated) and also a little below average for brackling (6). The variety has medium-early maturity.
- Disease resistance is fairly good with mildew (9), brown rust (6) and one of the best ratings for Rhynchosporium resistance (6). Early indications suggest that it is moderately susceptible to net blotch.
