Growing Variety
• Medium Autumn growth habit – suitable for early drilling to end of August

• Seed rate should target an even plant stand of 25-30 plants/m2 in spring

• Phoma leaf spot should be monitored and treated as required.

• Light Leaf Spot should be monitored and treated as required.

• Earliness of spring regrowth is mid/late

• 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 Impression CL is moderate 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
