Amarone

Amarone Winter Oilseed Rape

Breeder:

Type: 

Region:

Limagrain

Conventional TuYV

UK Wide

Agrii’s biggest selling conventional variety with an excellent
agronomy package.
One of the few conventional varieties to carry the TuYV
resistance trait.

Variety Positioning

  • Amarone has a Northern AHDB Recommendation but it performed well across the UK in our trials over the past three years (95% treated, 45.6% oil).
  • From the same breeder as Aardvark, it has already been shown to have the best autumn vigour (8.5) of any of the conventional varieties in our trials and has quickly become our most popular conventional variety.
  • Suitable for all soil types including more fertile situations.
  • Relatively quick to grow away in the spring (8) to help mitigate against tough conditions and cabbage stem flea beetle attack for those who want to save their own seed.
  • Relatively short (145cm), an excellent stiff canopy (8) (9) and mid-maturity (5) (5).
  • Good all-round disease resistance with light leaf spot (9) and phoma/ canker resistance (6).
  • It shows average susceptibility to Verticillium wilt (6) but, in spite of showing some symptoms, it appears to yield consistently well and clearly benefits from the TuYV resistance trait.
