Aardvark Winter Oilseed Rape






E&W Region


High gross output conventional variety
Very rapid spring regrowth to help reduce cabbage stem flea
beetle larval damage

Variety Positioning

  • Selected four years ago specifically for its ability to grow vigorously in the autumn and quickly away in the spring.
  • This type of growth habit has proven to be the most effective way to cope with cabbage stem flea beetle larval infestations.
  • Consistently high yields (100% treated, 91% untreated, 45.1% oil) in our trials and excellent feedback on its on-farm performance.
  • Suitable for all areas of the UK and all soils including more fertile sites.
  • Suits the main drilling window through to the end of the first week of September depending on soil conditions. Medium height (148cm), excellent stem stiffness (8) and slightly later maturity (4).
  • Good disease resistance against light leaf spot (9) and phoma/stem canker (6) and average tolerance of Verticillium stem stripe (5).
  • Unlike Amarone, it does not carry the TuYV resistance trait.
