Hard Feed Wheat

CDSV20122 x Reflection

High yielding hard feed wheat.

Ideally suited for later drilling and lighter soils.

Variety Positioning

  • A very high yielding hard feed wheat in Agrii trials (103% treated, 92% untreated) and sits near the top of the UK Recommended List so it continues to attract a lot of interest from growers.

  • However, it has a much lower specific weight (75.4 kg/hl, AHDB) compared with varieties like Graham, Gleam and KWS Dawsum and weaker straw. In spite of this it has taken a significant share of the wheat market. 

  • Champion is most suitable for the East and West regions, adaptable across soil types and performs well as a second wheat. It is not suitable for regions of high sterility risk and not recommended in Scotland.

  • The straw is reasonably tall (89 cm) and rather weak, (6.4) (4) treated, (6.4) (3) untreated, so attention needed here.

  • Later drilling, second wheat position, lighter soils can be used to help mitigate against the lodging risk. On a positive note it is relatively early to mature (0) (+1).

  • It has a very good set of disease scores with mildew (6.5), yellow rust (7.9) (7.4), Septoria tritici (7.9) (7.1), but weaker on brown rust (4.7) (3.3) and appears to be moderately susceptible to eyespot (4.1) and fusarium ear blight (5.7).

  • Resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
