- Suitable for all regions including areas of high sterility risk. It can be grown across a range of soil types. It is best grown from early October through to the end of December. It performs well as a second wheat and shows average competitiveness against blackgrass.
- With average straw strength (6 untreated, 7 treated) a routine PGR programme is recommended, especially in more fertile situations. Relatively late maturity (+5).
- Disease resistance is good for yellow rust (7.5) and Septoria tritici (5.7) but mildew (5.1) and brown rust (4.5) need watching carefully. It is resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
