Variety Positioning

  • The highest yielding variety (105% treated, 78% untreated) on the Recommended List, and high specific weight (70.2 kg/hl). It was also the highest yielding variety in Agrii trials over the past two years (102% treated) with one of the highest untreated yields (90%).
  • Suitable for all regions and soils with particularly strong performance on heavy soils (109%) in official trials. Relatively tall (86 cm treated, 95 cm untreated), stiff straw (8) and medium-early maturity. Its grassweed competitiveness is still being evaluated at Stow Longa.
  • Average disease resistance against mildew (5) and net blotch (5) but lower resistance against brown rust (4) and Rhynchosporium (6) than its official ratings. Resistant to Barley Yellow Mosaic Virus.
