SPRING WHEAT - Recommended for late autumn and spring sowing.
|Mulika Blackman Agriculture (W110 X Belvoir) x Tybalt
The dominant spring wheat variety with 70 % of the certified seed area. Can be autumn
or spring sown, producing high quality bread making grain. Resistant to OWBM but only
moderate resistance to Septoria. Ideal for flexible sowing where blackgrass is an issue.
KWS Willow KWS (00-703 xTybalt) x Belvoir
Very high yielding autumn sown where its fusarium resistance make it Willow a better
choice than Mulika for the after maize slot. Good foliar disease resistance and a stiff
straw make it ideal for sites of high fertility. Always performs well in Pearce autumn
and spring sown trials.
SY Sanette Syngenta Summit x Yarde
No longer rated as a malting barley, but still a useful feed barley with strong medium
length straw with a good resistance to brackling, good foliar disease resistance and
yields similar to the best.
Westminster Limagrain NSI 97-5547 X Barke
but no variety has quite the mix of plentiful long straw, disease resistance and bold
grain. Ideally suits a low input or organic system. Book early as supplies will be scarce.
KWS Irina KWS Conchita x Quench
an export malting barley having been shipped successfully in 2014. Stiff short straw,
with a 9 for brackling. Similar disease profile to Planet.
Odyssey Limagrain Concerto x Quench
Fully approved for both brewing and distilling use and with a substantial yield advantage
over Concerto the previous best dual use variety. Limited market for export however.
Very high yields in Pearce Trials , with good straw and disease characteristics.
Somewhatt late to mature.
Propino Syngenta Quench x Tipple
The dominant variety in recent years, but now with a substantial yield penalty. Very
marketable grain particularly for export markets. Relatively long straw with good
standing. Will remain a favorite with specialist malting barley grower.
RAGT Planet RAGT Seeds Tamtam x Concerto
The best spring barley across Europe. Highest yielding in official trials in most countries
Very high yields with bold grain of high specific weight. Yields 8% above Firth.
Susceptible to crown rust (as most are) Early maturity and short moderately stiff
High yields of beans suitable for the human consumption market although the
sample can be smaller than some varieties. Taller than Fury but with similar standing
ability, moderately susceptible to Downy mildew.
Best combination of yield, agronomic characteristics and Downy mildew resistance of
any commercially available varieties, 3% above Fuego the current market leader.
The highest yielding spring bean with the boldest grain sample, long moderate strength
straw so would not be suitable for the most fertile sites. Moderately susceptible to
High yielding early maturing white pea, ideal grown as a combining crop or as a
constituent of mixtures. Resistant to pea wilt and good resistance to Downy mildew.
The most widely grown non-marrowfat pea largely because of its suitability
to the blue pea / micronsing market which can give good premiums. High yields
coupled with excellent resistance to downy mildew and pea wilt virus.
