Variety Positioning

  • Stormed on to the Recommended list and a bit of a dark horse! However, it is the highest yielding wheat on the list along with LG Skyscraper.
  • Grain quality good with HFN 265 and specific weight 78.3.
  • Straw length is relatively tall and not particularly stiff  so a decent pgr regime will be needed to optimise the high yield potential.
  • Disease scores are a bit of a mixed bag against mildew, yellow rust and brown rust, but good tritici.
  • Average maturity and is resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
  • Limited data suggests it is only average as a second wheat, but whilst it yields well on heavy soil, it really appears to excel on light soil.
  • So one to watch, but the slight downside is that it is a Hereford cross which is already starting to break to yellow rust, so one would need to be careful…
