From the stable that has already delivered WPB Elyann to the market, this Wiersum line will appeal to growers looking for a high yielding spring oat with excellent grain quality. It has impressive low screenings, a good kernel content and average maturity, similar to that of Firth. At 109cm it is a taller plant type but has very stiff straw gaining a score of 7 without PGR. Couple this with a good balanced disease resistance and you have a variety that will be liked equally on-farm and in the oat mill.
