KWS Firefly is a great new addition to the Recommended List and is the UK’s highest yielding Group 3 milling wheat with broad market appeal.
KWS Firefly is suited to all regions, but performs best in the main wheat production areas of England. It is a consistent performer across light and heavy soils, as well as first and second cereal slots.
KWS Firefly has one of the most impressive set of disease scores of any high-yielding variety. Its Septoria tritici score is the best in its class, while it also has a better untreated yield and Hagberg than others in the Group 3 market.
With a strong grain package and correct balance of resistance and extensibility, KWS Firefly is well suited for biscuit manufacturers. The variety will also deliver on the continent thanks to being fully approved for export with the uks classification.
