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

Variety Positioning

  • A leading candidate for the East and West Recommended List and one of the latest hybrids from Limagrain. Tested for the first time this season in Agrii trials where it has already shown slightly higher autumn vigour than Ambassador. It has shown very high gross output (109%) and high oil content (45.2%) in official trials.
  • Suitable for all soils and regions of the UK for drilling from early August right through to early September. The breeder claims a similar growth habit in the spring to Ambassador with average height (144 cm), good stem stiffness (8), lodging resistance (9) and early maturity (6).
  • Excellent disease profiles including a robust light leaf spot rating (6.5) and RLM7 stem canker resistance (7.6). The breeder has evidence from UK and French trials to show that it is less affected by Verticillium wilt compared with Ambassador with less pronounced symptoms. It also carries the trait for pod shatter resistance.
