|Type: Group 1, Bread and Feed||Pedigree: C4148 X Hurricane|
- Remains a very significant variety in the market across the bread and feed sectors due to its good disease resistance, 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 keep seed rates up, but still very competitive against Blackgrass. Short, stiff-strawed (8 untreated, 9 treated) and relatively early to mature (0).
- It has outstanding Brown Rust (8.0) and average Septoria tritici (5.0) resistance but is very susceptible to Yellow Rust (3.4). Good performance as a second wheat. Moderate resistance to Fusarium Ear Blight but more prone to sprouting than other varieties. Resistant to Orange Wheat Blossom Midge.
