- V316OL remains the mainstay of the HOLL acreage and continues to deliver high treated (105%) and untreated yields (98%) with high oil content (45.8%). The HOLL market continues to deliver a significant financial premium over ‘00’ oilseed rape.
- It remains very attractive to the crusher and growers alike. Suitable for all soils and regions but most of Agrii’s sales are in the East and West regions. Yorkshire tends to be the Northern limit because the crop is crushed in Kent. Performs well on heavier soils but ensure a robust PGR programme is used to reduce the height of the canopy, especially in more fertile situations. Best drilled in August as it is a slower developing variety and less suited for September drilling unless conditions remain favourable.
- Grows quickly away in the spring to produce a very tall stiff canopy. Medium-early to flower and a long pod fill period means that it has medium-late maturity. Reasonably good disease resistance but no pod shatter resistance. One of the varieties least affected by Verticillium Wilt where it was assessed in Agrii’s trials.
