Breeder: Limagrain Breeder PDF
Type: Soft Feed & Potential Distilling Pedigree: Garrus x LG77

Variety Positioning

  • A high yielding soft feed variety (103% treated, 94% untreated), and specific weight similar to RGT Saki in Agrii trials over the past two years. A soft feed variety that is also rated as ‘medium’ for distilling. The variety is not on the AHDB Recommended List, but scores high in our VSR ratings.
  • Suitable for all regions (excluding areas of high sterility risk), best grown on a heavy soil type and has shown good performance as a second wheat. Unsuitable for early drilling. Its later drill performance and grassweed competitiveness are still under evaluation in Agrii trials.
  • Good straw characteristics (8 treated, 6 untreated) and medium maturity (+1 day) relative to Skyfall.
  • It shows good yellow rust (8.0), brown rust (7.8) and average Septoria tritici (5.9) resistance. This is reflected in the relatively high untreated yield (94%). Resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
