Variety Positioning

  • RGT Wolverine is the first variety with tolerance to Barley Yellow Dwarf Virus (BYDV) in wheat. It performed well in Agrii trials in 2019 with the highest yields (107%) of any variety tested and good grain quality (75.9 kg/hl, AHDB). However, it dropped back last year with yields averaging 94% treated and 70% untreated over the past two years.
  • Suitable for all regions except those of high sterility risk and best grown on heavy soils and drilled in the main drilling window up until the end of October. Average second wheat performance and average grassweed competitiveness in Agrii trials.
  • Medium height (86 cm) with average lodging resistance (untreated 6, treated 6) so use a robust PGR programme, especially in more fertile situations. It is relatively late to mature (+4).
  • Resistance against yellow rust (3.7) dropped significantly last year and there is evidence to suggest that brown rust (8.8) resistance may decline in future. This combined with relatively weak Septoria tritici (5.0) resistance means that a high input fungicide programme is essential. It also appears to be relatively weak against eyespot and it is not resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
