New varieties of wheat, oilseed rape and forage will be joining DSV’s established portfolio of wheat, OSR and cover crops at CropTec.
Petroschka maize is medium maturing for the forage market with excellent energy yield and disease resistance. LiRoyal, is an early maturing forage variety with high starch content and impressive yields.
A newly recommended AHDB OSR variety, Temptation, is DSV’s first variety with Turnip Yellow Virus (TuYV) resistance and it also has multi-gene resistance for phoma and light leaf spot.
DSV also expects to have at least three AHDB oilseed rape candidate varieties with triple layers for resistance to TuYV, pod shatter resistance and multi-gene resistance for stem canker/phoma.
A new Group 4 hard wheat candidate for the West region, Theodore, is also likely to join the AHDB list. It is said to have list-topping disease resistance and outstanding untreated yield.
