|KWS LILI Wheat|
|KWS LUMOS Wheat|
(Cordiale x Biscay) x Timaru. New variety from Senova in UK which stands out as having exceptional specific weight / grain quality - average in Irish trials over past 2 seasons = 80 KPH!! Also offers a obust agronomic profile with very good overall disease resistance, straw strength and resistance to sprouting. Yields would appear to be 1 - 2% below the Diego / Avatar level but with its solid overall profile could make it a banker variety in a wet harvest.! Definitely worth considering.
|KWS LILI Wheat|
KWS Horizon x CPBT W134. New introduction last autumn, it is also joint highest yielding variety (100) on the 2016 Rec List. Group 2 type, similar to Cordiale / Eisntein.

Suited to both early and late drilling slots.
Istabraq x Lion. Joint-highest yielding variety on the current Irish Rec List (100). Good allround disease resistance package except for mildew. Would also appear to be strong on fusarium.

Tall strawed and stiff, very dark green in appearance. Late maturing. Can be grown as first or second wheat. Good grain quality.
Skalmeje x Kredo. Exciting new variety that offers exceptional disease resistance combined with high yields and good grain quality. Very good septoria (7), rust (9) and mildew (9) resistance.
