The spring wheat with tried and tested field performance

  • Good disease resistance
  • Tall but very stiff strawed
  • Vigorous growth habit in early development



KWS Kilburn has found favour on-farm as a tried and tested, spring wheat. The variety produces very big ears which yield good HFN and specific weights. While a tall variety it is very stiff and we’ve never seen it lodge here at our breeding station in Thriplow. The height may, in part, explain its ability to do well sown in the spring. With a well-balanced set of disease resistances, KWS Kilburn is also relatively easy to manage. KWS Kilburn has an extremely competitive growth habit, as is demonstrated in Agrii’s blackgrass trial at Stow Longa. With such a competitive nature, it is the first step to 88% blackgrass cultural control.
