RGT Lantern

Breeder: RAGT Printable PDF
Type: Group 4, Hard Feed Pedigree: Kielder x Relay

Variety Positioning

  • Missed recommendation by a small margin, but still under evaluation by Agrii R&D.
  • It is an interesting cross including Relay, which was a very useful stalwart as a variety and indications are RGT Lantern should be a very useful second wheat.
  • Medium length straw and reasonably stiff  but use a decent pgr programme to optimise the yield potential.
  • Grain quality decent enough with HFN 271 and specific weight 75.7.
  • Good disease scores so far for mildew, yellow rust, brown rust and tritici .
  • A little later in maturity and RGT Lantern is resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
  • Well worth a try in the second wheat slot.
