Variety Positioning

  • Best on heavier soils, a good second wheat and suitable for later drilling.
  • Reasonably stiff (6 untreated, 7 treated) and mid-maturity (+1). Decent scores against Septoria tritici (6.0) and brown rust (6.2) but very weak against yellow rust (2.7), fusarium ear blight and susceptible to orange wheat blossom midge.
  • Good baking quality with excellent grain characteristics and suitable for ukp export. Drill from towards the end of September, preferably on heavy land.
  • Excellent second wheat performance. Decently stiff (8) (7) but take care in fertile situations.
  • Relatively early to mature (1) (0). Reasonable mildew (7), brown rust (7.3) (5.7) and Septoria tritici (6.1) (6.2) resistance, but very weak on yellow rust (3.3) (3.0). Not resistant to orange wheat blossom midge and moderately susceptible to fusarium ear blight (5.8).
