V316OLVariety Positioning

  • V316OL is the mainstay of the HOLL acreage and remains one of the highest yielding hybrids on the Recommended List. It continues to perform well in Agrii’s and on-farm. The HOLL market continues to deliver premiums to growers and contracts for harvest m2019 are priced at £20 over ‘00’ oilseed rape. With high gross output, high oil content and excellent HOLL quality, 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 & West Region. Yorkshire tends to be the northern limit because it 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 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.
