Like its parent, KWS Santiago, KWS Kerrin has made a strong name for itself in the Group 4 hard feed market. By providing consistent performance across regions, soil types and drilling dates; it is a variety that is reliable and has proven very popular with farmers across the UK. KWS Kerrin requires a good fungicide programme to fully harness its true yield potential and comes with resistance to OWBM. Later sowing varieties has the benefit of increasing Septoria resistance; by sowing KWS Kerrin mid-October onwards 0.5 to 1 point in resistance can be effectively added. Additionally, KWS Kerrin has a good specific weight at 76.1 kg/ hl and has a similar plant type and growth habit to KWS Santiago.
