DK Impressario CL A robust combination of Clearfield herbicide tolerance and DEKALB’s yield protecting traits DK Impressario CL is a new Clearfield variety for 2017 combining high yield potential with solid combined disease resistance and pod shatter resistance.

Features
• Tolerance of Clearfield Herbicides Cleranda and Cleravo
• Vigorous Establishment and Rapid Autumn Growth
• Double Phoma Resistance giving strong resistance to Stem Canker
• Good resistance to Light Leaf Spot
• Mid earliness of spring regrowth with mid flowering
• High yield potential and oil content
• Pod Shatter Resistance

Growing Variety
• Medium-Rapid Autumn growth habit – suitable for drilling up to early 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 autumn if at all.
• Light Leaf Spot should be monitored and treated as required.
• The medium-rapid autumn growth habit means a PGR may be required in early/mid October on very forward crops to reduce the risk of over development pre winter.
• Ensure the Green Area Index is accurately determined at the start of spring growth to guide appropriate nitrogen rates for optimal canopy size. Lodging risk with DK Impressario CL is moderate/low and there may be a benefit from PGR use to optimise the canopy structure.
• Pod Shatter Resistance reduces the risk of seed losses approaching and during harvest and will protect the crop where harvest is delayed
Breeders view

 “DK Impressario CL is a restored hybrid with the Clearfieldtm herbicide resistance trait. It is also capable of high yields with high oil content. It features pod shatter resistance, double phoma resistance and good tolerance to light leaf spot. Has performed extremely well in our own breeding trials.”
