KWS Kinetic is the highest yielding Group 4 candidate for 2019/20. Over the past two years it has given a 3% yield advantage over the control variety, KWS Santiago. This, coupled with a high untreated yield and a number of important characteristics, makes KWS Kinetic a very exciting new variety for farmers.
KWS Kinetic has a good disease package, including 6s across the board and the added benefit of OWBM resistance. It’s a variety that stands well in the field due to its very stiff straw.
With an outstanding specific weight of 78.8 kg/hl and the right balance of protein and HFN, KWS Kinetic is able to fulfil the high volume feed market requirements successfully.
