Secobra, France, UK Agent: Agrii

GROUP 4 (Hard Feed)

Evolution x Stigg

 

A new non-Recommended List hard feed wheat with consistently high yields.
Outstanding foliar disease resistance.

Variety Positioning

  • Another variety not included on the Recommended List, but with
    plenty to offer. This hard feed variety has performed very well in
    Agrii trials over the past three years with high yields (104% treated, 96% untreated).
  • Grain quality is average with specific weight 76.0 kg/hl.
  • It should be considered as an alternative to Theodore in the West with similar Septoria resistance but a much improved specific weight.
  • Suitable across the UK excluding areas of high sterility risk, but likely to be mainly grown in the West.
  • Unsuitable for early drilling but can be drilled through to the end of January and is an acceptable second wheat choice.
  • Tall (90 cm) but decently stiff straw (7 treated, 6 untreated), average competitiveness against grassweeds and later
    maturity (+5).
  • An excellent set of disease scores with mildew (6.4) yellow rust (8.1), brown rust (7.4) and Septoria tritici (7.4).
  • It appears to be susceptible to fusarium ear blight and not resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
