Very high yielding soft wheat in Agrii trials over the past three years (103% treated, 86% untreated) and it remains one of the highest yielding soft wheats on the UK Recommended List. Good specific weight (76.5 kg/hl, AHDB) and rated ‘medium’ for distilling but unsuitable for uksexport.

Variety Positioning

Consistent high yields and good physical grain quality
Soft feed wheat and rated ‘medium’ for distilling

  • Very high yielding soft wheat in Agrii trials over the past three years (102% treated, 88% untreated) and it continues to perform well on the UK Recommended List.
  • Good specific weight (77.3 kg/hl) and rated ‘medium’ for distilling but unsuitable for uks export.
  • Suitable for all regions of the UK including areas of high sterility risk.
  • Consistent across soil types including lighter soils and very high yielding as a second wheat, even though it is best grown as a first wheat. Proven to be one of the most consistent varieties over the past few years, probably due to its taller straw.
  • Best drilled from the start of October through to the end of January. A high tillering variety, fast to grow away in the spring and average competitiveness against grassweeds.
  • Fairly tall straw of very average strength, treated (6) (6) and untreated (6) (5), so it needs a robust PGR programme.
  • Reasonably early to mature (0) (0). Its disease profile is very average, with mildew (7), yellow rust (7.4) (7.0), brown rust (5.3) (3.9) and poor Septoria tritici (4.9) (4.4).
  • Moderately resistant to fusarium ear blight (6.4). It is resistant to orange wheat blossom midge.
