Agrii specialists in conversation on farm

Our expertise is deep and varied because we built Agrii by combining specialised companies over the last 30 years

Let's find out more about how Agrii helps with more about sustainable farming and the production of safe, affordable and healthy food



Variety Positioning

  • Hacker has one of the highest specific weights (70 kg/hl) available and one of the lowest screening losses.
  • Its best performance has been in the West (101%) but it has also found favour in the North (99%).
  • Medium height (72 cm), one of the stiffest varieties (8 treated, 8 untreated) and excellent resistance to necking and brackling (9).
  • All highly desirable characteristics and, to top it off, its earliness is unmatched by newer varieties.
  • Good mildew (8) resistance, average brown rust (5) but its Rhynchosporium (5) resistance is slightly weaker than most varieties, so it needs watching.
  • Moderate susceptibility to net blotch.
