207-589 x Sandra. New 2-row candidate variety from Breun in Germany which is up for recommendation this autumn. High yield potential which is better than all existing 2R varieties in the market (+4% over Cassia and Infinity in 2018 trials). Better grain quality than Cassia – over 2 yrs of trials, Valerie ranks at 70.5 KPH vs Cassia @ 69.9 KPH. Lowest screening levels also of all varieties tested (0.6%). Valerie is short strawed (75 cm) and displays good straw strength and good resistance to straw breakdown. Good overall disease resistance apart from mildew. Early maturing (7) to help spread harvest. Worth trying.
