- Remains at about 10% share of the wheat seed market although Agrii sales are higher due to its consistent performance, late-drill flexibility, stiff straw and early maturity. Widely accepted by UK millers and often finds its way into export cargos.
- Suitable for all areas (including Scotland) and soil types with outstanding performance on lighter soils. Best drilled from the last week of September onwards and it can be drilled right through to the end of the first week in March. A lower tillering variety so seed rates need to be increased but it remains very competitive against grassweeds. Short, stiff-strawed (8 untreated, 9 treated) and relatively early to mature (0).
- It has outstanding brown rust (8.0) and average Septoria tritici (5.1) resistance but is very susceptible to yellow rust (3.4). Good performance as a second wheat. Understanding how to grow the variety justifies its high VSR rating. Resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
