Variety Positioning

  • High yields (101% treated, 88% untreated) in Agrii trials over the past two years and good grain quality (76.1 kg/hl) in official trials. Not added to the AHDB Recommended List but a very high VSR because of its favourable agronomic rating.
  • Suitable for all regions excluding areas of high sterility risk until further information is available. Best grown on heavy soils and drilled in the main drilling window up until the end of December. Agrii trials data shows it performs well as a second wheat. Average competitiveness against grassweeds.
  • Reasonably stiff straw (7 treated, 6 untreated) but later maturity (+4).
  • Currently good disease resistance against yellow rust (8.8), average brown rust (5.5) but excellent resistance against Septoria tritici (7.9). Resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
