RevelationVariety Positioning

  • Revelation has been a significant variety over the past few years but is becoming outclassed in yield and starting to drop back in popularity. Although approved for distilling it is not recommended in Scotland because of its late maturity
  • Suitable for both heavy and lighter soils. Performs well across all regions but its later maturity and susceptibility to sprouting has limited its Northern reach. Good as a first wheat and its ‘Rendezvous’ Eyespot resistance helps it in the second wheat slot.
  • A very slow speed of development has made it a popular choice as an early driller which is further complemented by its medium height, stiff straw and good all round disease profile. Performs equally well in the main drilling window but less suited to late drilling. Moderate tillering and prostrate growth habit and good competitiveness against blackgrass.
