LG Auckland Winter Oilseed Rape
✚ Similar to Ambassador with high yields and virus resistance.
✚ Excellent disease profile with improved Verticillium stem stripe tolerance.
- One of the latest hybrids from Limagrain and tested over the past two years in Agrii trials where it has delivered very high yields (103% treated, 94% untreated) and high oils (45.3%).
- It is a step up from Ambassador in some areas with a slightly faster autumn growth habit (8), slightly quicker to grow away in the spring (8) and shows reduced symptoms of Verticillium stem stripe. In many other ways it is very similar to Ambassador and has quickly become Agrii’s second biggest selling variety.
- Suitable for all soils and regions of the UK for drilling from mid-August right through to mid-September. It has an average height (150cm) and average stem stiffness (7) (5) so a robust PGR programme is advised.
- Avoid very fertile sites or very early drilling. It has mid-maturity (5).
- Excellent all-round disease profiles including robust light leaf spot (7) (8) and RLM7 stem canker resistance (7).
- There is good evidence from the breeder and Agrii trials that is it less affected by Verticillium wilt (6) compared with Ambassador (5) with fewer pronounced symptoms.
- It also carries the trait for pod shatter resistance.
