The variety has a good all-round disease package, including impressive 6’s for Rhynchosporium and net blotch coupled with all-important BaYMV resistance and BYDV tolerance. It is a reasonably tall variety, which will aid blackgrass control, but it is stiff-strawed, which will benefit growers on heavier land.
