Variety Positioning

  • The highest yielding Group 1 wheat and remains Agrii’s fourth biggest selling variety nationally with about 9% share of the seed market. Good baking quality with excellent physical grain characteristics and a high Hagberg Falling Number. Fully approved for both domestic markets and export as a ukp wheat.
  • Its best performance is on medium and heavier soil and it is suitable for all regions of the UK except for areas with a high sterility risk. It builds protein at a similar rate to Skyfall and faster than both KWS Siskin and KWS Extase. Suitable for drilling from the last week of September or, later drilled, through to the end of January.
  • Moderate height, reasonably stiff straw (6 untreated, 7 treated), mid-maturity (+1) and moderately competitive against grassweeds.
  • It has an average disease package with decent scores against Septoria tritici (5.5)
    and brown rust (6.2) but very weak against yellow rust (3.5). Again, understanding how to grow the variety warrants its high VSR. It has also shown good second wheat performance but is susceptible to fusarium ear blight and orange wheat blossom midge.
