Breeder: Syngenta Breeder PDF
Type: Group 4, Hard Feed Pedigree: (Hereford x Oakley) x Hereford

Variety Positioning

  • A high input, high output variety with very high treated (105%) and untreated (81%) yields and very bold grain (78.2 kg/hl, AHDB).
  • Suitable for all regions and soil types with particularly good performance on lighter soils. Drill from the end of the last week of September right through to the end of January. Very tall straw (95 cm) and relatively weak (6 treated, 4 untreated) so a robust PGR programme is essential. Medium-late maturity (+3).
  • Disease resistance to Septoria tritici (7.2) is good but weak against brown rust (5.0) and its resistance to yellow rust (3.3) has effectively broken down. It is resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
