Istabraq x Lion. Joint-highest yielding variety on the current Irish Rec List (105). Good all-round disease resistance package except for mildew. Would also appear to be strong on fusarium. Can be sown early (slow developing) but has only average tillering capacity. Despite this, it produced the top yields in early sown trials for past 2 years. Tall strawed and stiff, very dark green in appearance. Late maturing. Can be grown as first or second wheat. Good grain quality.
Cordiale x Dover. New variety from KWS (UK) that offers about 5% more yield than Cordiale with improved septoria resistance and equal straw strength. Very consistent both in trials and on-farm. Early maturing with excellent grain quality similar to Cordiale. Not ideally suited to early sowing but can be sown anytime from 1st October through to mid-February. Added to the Irish Rec List in 2014 with 103 for yield and excellent agronomic scores across all traits.
Claire x Wasmo. Now a well established variety, still capable of delivering a good result across a range of rotational positions. Solid performer with good septoria (7) resistance. Prone to mildew and also needs attention for yellow rust. Tall strawed but stiff. Late maturing.
(Reaper x Cadenza) x Malacca. The only fully approved milling wheat for winter sowings. Cordiale is still the preferred milling variety used by Odlums and is also very popular across the UK. Very reliable variety, with good yields, great straw strength. Early maturing, with excellent grain quality - high KPH, high Protein, high HFN with very good sprouting resistance. Suitable for all rotational positions, can drill early or late. Needs a robust fungicide programme for septoria control.

Dutch-bred, bearded variety with totally new genetic line. Moderately suceptible to lodging so needs a good PGR programme including Moddus / CeroneShows strong resistance to mildew and fusarium. Early maturing with good specific weight (75 KPH) of feed quality.
Josselin x Pasteur. High performing milling quality variety from RAGT in France. Candidate variety for recommendation in 2015. Yields in Irish RL trials to date place it slightly ahead of Sparrow. Very good variety to tiller. Average mildew resistance but good on septoria, rusts and fusarium. Moderately suceptible to lodging so needs a good PGR programme including Moddus / Cerone. Excellent grain quality (78+ KPH) with low TGW.
