- A new hard feed variety that performed well in Agrii’s national trials in 2021 (101% treated, 94% untreated).While mid-ranking in terms of yield, it offers more choice to reduce input costs through improved agronomic characteristics. It has good physical grain quality (76.3 kg/hl AHDB).
- Suitable for all regions but high sterility risk areas should be avoided until more information is available. It can be grown on both heavy and light soils from the middle of September through to the end of December. It has also performed well as a second wheat.
- Medium height (88 cm) with stiff straw (7 treated, 6 untreated). Its grassweed competitiveness is still under evaluation and it has mid-maturity (+2).
- A strong set of disease scores for mildew (6.6), yellow rust (9), brown rust (6.0) and Septoria tritici (7.1) but early indications suggest that it is susceptible to fusarium ear blight. Resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
