Variety Positioning

  • A very high yielding soft distilling variety that narrowly missed getting on to the Recommended List. High treated and untreated yields in Agrii’s trials that reflect its good disease resistance. Rated as ‘medium’ for distilling and, while there is interest in the North, it important to secure a contract before growing it. It is also important to note that it is not approved for uks export. It has a slightly low specific weight (74.9) and Hagberg Falling Number (181).
  • Suitable for both heavy and light land and as a first or second wheat. Best drilled in the main drilling window and with low tillering capacity seed rates need to be increased. Very stiff straw and its lodging and stem stiffness ratings are better that the official ratings suggest. Reasonably good grass weed competitiveness and slightly later to mature (+3) than the official maturity rating.
  • Generally good disease resistance and its only weakness is Brown Rust but this is of much less concern in the North.
  • Not resistant to Orange wheat Blossom Midge.
