Variety Positioning

  • Remains a consistent performer for lower-milling grades (99% treated, 88% untreated) but largely superseded by KWS Extase. Very competitive against black-grass and suitable for late-drilling. Moderate stem stiffness (5 untreated, 6 treated) with good resistance against Septoria tritici (6.2) and yellow rust (9.0). Weak against brown rust (4.2) and fusarium ear blight and not resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
