Small but mighty!

  • A unique type, unlike any variety on the current Recommended List
  • Earlier maturity than any Recommended variety
  • Shorter and stiffer than any wheat on the market



KWS Parkin is the ideal choice for those looking to start drilling early. It can be drilled across a range of soil types although its best yield performances may come from heavier soils. From our own trials, we’ve seen that it is highly suitable for both first and second wheat positions. To get the best out of KWS Parkin, growers should consider drilling this variety before the 25th September. KWS Parkin’s other stand out feature is its height; at 78.6cm, it’s an impressive 15cm shorter than the tallest variety on the RL and super stiff too.
