GROUP 4 (Hard Feed)

Kielder x Hereford

 

Variety Positioning

  • Clearly very high yielding (105% treated, 81% untreated) and
    reasonable grain quality (77.3 kg/hl) but its market share is set to slide due to increased disease susceptibility, particularly yellow rust.
  • Suitable across soil types and regions and has yielded well in second wheat trials.
  • Relatively weak straw, treated (7) (6) and untreated (7) (5), so it needs a robust PGR programme.
  • Its competitiveness against grassweeds is poor so limit it to low risk fields or drill much later to offset risk. Relatively early to mature (0) (0).
  • Disease scores are respectable with mildew (6.6), brown rust (5.5) (5.0) and Septoria tritici (5.7) (6.0), but be careful with yellow rust (5.0) (3.1).
  • Resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
