RGT Bairstow

RGT Bairstow - Group 4 Winter Wheat





GROUP 4 (Soft Feed & Distilling)

(Revelation x KWS Santiago) x Cougar


Variety Positioning

Rated ‘good’ for distilling
Reasonably good disease profile

  • RGT Bairstow was a new addition to the UK and Scottish
    Recommended Lists last year. It has given high yields in Agrii trials (100% treated, 87% untreated) with consistent performance across the UK.
  • Grain quality average with Hagberg Falling Number 228 and specific weight 76.2 kg/hl, but it is rated ‘good’ for distilling so is likely to be of interest in Scotland where it has performed consistently well (103%).
  • Suitable for all soil types, including lighter land, and it performs well as a second wheat. With an average speed of development it is not suited to very early drilling but will perform well through to the end of January.
  • Very competitive against grassweeds in Stow Longa trials.
  • Moderately tall with average straw strength treated (6) (6) and (6) (5) untreated so it requires a robust PGR programme.
  • Relatively late to mature (+2) (+4).
  • RGT Bairstow’s disease scores are decent enough with mildew (6), yellow rust (7.5) (7.2), brown rust (6.2) (5.6) and Septoria tritici (6.0) (5.9).
  • Moderately susceptible to fusarium ear blight and resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
