DK Exsteel

Breeder:

Region:

Bayer CropScience

Hybrid

UK Wide

 

Remains one of the highest gross output hybrids in Agrii trials.
Fast vigorous growth habit in the autumn and spring.

Variety Positioning

  • One of the highest yielding varieties in Agrii trials every year for the past seven years, which is remarkable given that the variety doesn’t have the advantage of the more recent TuYV trait.
  • High gross output hybrid (107%), high untreated yields (94%) and a high oil content (46.4%) in spite of not having the TuYV trait.
  • Suitable for all soils and all regions. It has been proven in Agrii trials to perform across the UK especially in cabbage stem flea beetle affected areas because of its vigorous growth habit.
  • Consistently one of the most vigorous hybrids in the autumn (8) and quick to move away in the spring (8).
  • Trials have shown that it is one of the best varieties to cope with cabbage flea beetle larval infestations. This pest has not gone away and the vigorous growth habit of DK Exsteel remains a major advantage.
  • Tall (155cm), stiff canopy (8) and medium maturity (5).
  • Excellent disease resistance with light leaf spot (8) and RLM7 stem canker resistance (8) and good tolerance to Verticillium wilt(6).
  • It also carries the pod shatter resistance trait.
  • Not resistant to Turnip Yellows Virus.
