Bred and developed in the UK, KWS Alabaster is a novel white wheat, which has an inherently paler seed coat than mainstream UK winter wheats and a bright white endosperm. The variety produces a lighter flour wither paler bran that can be useful acrossa range of end user applications.
Sown in the mainstream winter wheat slot, KWS Alabaster delivers excellent yields, on a par with the market leading UK Group 1. The variety has a good all-round disease package and is short and stiff strawed.
As a white wheat, it is important to ensure that grain quality is maintained at harvest; as with any other milling wheat KWS Alabaster should be priority harvested to ensure retention of the HFN. KWS Alabaster should be stored separately to protect its premium potential.
