  • A specialist brewing variety grown on contract for the production of Budweiser beer.
  • It has specific grain characteristics with the combination of high Free Amino Nitrogen (FAN) and high Diastatic.
  • Power (DP) which suits the production of this globally renowned beer.
  • Growers need to target nitrogen levels around 1.8-1.9% and it attracts premiums to help offset its lower yield.
  • Contracts are generally limited to the East and East Midlands.
  • Suitable for a range of soil types but is often grown on heavier land where grain nitrogen tends to be higher.
  • It is a continental type with a very fast speed of development so it should not be sown before the beginning of March and it has very early maturity, which offers rotational benefits.
  • Slightly taller than average (76 cm), and while its lodging resistance (7 treated) is in-line with RGT Planet, its brackling resistance is low (4) so it must be combined as a priority.
  • Good lodging resistance and very early maturity make it an ideal entry for oilseed rape.
  • Sound disease resistance with net blotch and brown rust similar to that of RGT Planet but mildew needs watching (4) and Rhynchosporium is on the lower side.
