Variety Positioning

  • Agrii’s biggest selling variety, proving popular over the past few years with its high consistent yield and strong traits package.
  • It continues to perform well on-farm and has produced high yields (106% treated, 95% untreated) and a good oil content (44.7%) in Agrii trials over the past three years.
  • It has become the go-to variety for many growers.
  • There is no doubt that the trait conferring resistance to Turnip Yellows Virus is delivering a significant lift in yield of about 7%.
  • Suitable for all soils and regions of the UK, indeed, it was the highest yielding variety in Scotland in 2019.
  • Ideal for later drilling with a very fast speed of development in the autumn (8) and relatively early to grow away in the spring (8).
  • The new N-Flex trait delivers improved nitrogen-use efficiency, especially in situations where nitrogen is limiting.
  • Average height (154 cm) with a stiff canopy (9).
  • Disease resistance includes a robust light leaf spot rating (7) (8) and RLM7 stem canker resistance (7).
  • It has average tolerance to Verticillium wilt (5) in terms of visible symptoms but continues to deliver consistently in spite of the disease, which may be attributed to the combination of the good pod shatter resistance trait and mid-early maturity (5).
