LG Anarion

Breeder:  Limagrain Printable PDF
Region: E&W Region Type: Clubroot Hybrid

Variety Positioning

  • A new clubroot resistant variety that is still in National List trials is the UK but already approved on the continent. Very high yields (100% of controls) in UK official trials and was 10% higher yielding than Alasco and 5% higher yielding than the UK market leader, Crome, in the breeder’s own trials.
  • The breeder claims very strong autumn vigour which was confirmed in Agrii Early-Lines trials last autumn and good winter hardiness was confirmed in Polish trials. It is quick to grow away in the spring and grows to be relatively tall with good standing ability. Mid-early flowering and maturity.
  • Good Light Leaf Spot (6.1) and RLM7 phoma/stem canker (6.3) resistance. It also incorporates the valuable pod shatter resistance trait which is now standard in all of the hybrids from Limagrain. It is currently in tests with Agrii, NAIB-TAG and Scottish Agronomy.
  • Like all the clubroot varieties, LG Anarion should be used as part of an integrated approach using other cultural methods of control. Recommended for use on clubroot infected land only to minimise the risk of resistance to this valuable genetic trait.
