  • Performs well across heavy and lighter soil types and suitable for all regions of the UK. Relatively tall (83 cm treated, 95 cm untreated), average lodging resistance (6 treated, 6 untreated) and very early maturity. Its grassweed competitiveness is still under evaluation.
  • It has the best mildew (7) resistance of any variety on the list, and average ratings for Rhynchosporium (5) and net blotch (5) but a lower score for brown rust (5) than its official rating suggests (8). Resistant to Barley Yellow Mosaic Virus.
