Growing Variety
• Rapid Autumn growth habit – suitable for drilling up to mid September
• Seed rate should target an even plant stand of 25-30 plants/m2 in spring
• Double phoma resistance means phoma leaf spot thresholds for treatment may not be met until later in the autumn if at all.
• Light Leaf Spot should be monitored but high resistance reduces the risk of severe infections.
• The rapid autumn growth habit means a PGR may be required in early/mid October on crops early sown or on fertile sites to reduce the risk of over development pre winter.
• The early and rapid spring growth habit means PGRs should be considered on forward crops and fertile sites or those with a history of lodging along with appropriate nitrogen rates to avoid oversize canopies. Ensure the Green Area Index is accurately determined at the start of spring growth.
• Pod Shatter Resistance reduces the risk of seed losses approaching and during harvest and will protect the crop where harvest is delayed
