Resilient, Reliable, Returns. KWS Zealum has you covered!

  • Exceptional performance in the early sown slot
  • Super stiff strawed
  • High yielding soft Group 4 with premium market opportunities



KWS Zealum is a super stiff, super versatile soft Group 4 wheat that has a genuinely resilient combination of characteristics, delivering performance in a range of challenging growing conditions and locations. With just under 40% of the soft Group 4 market sown in the AHDB north, KWS Zealum brings all of the key characteristics needed for a northern wheat to perform on-farm: It is fully approved for distilling, giving access to the 400,000T market, delivers the very best performance in very early and early sown trials along with a good disease package including a 7 for mildew and [6] for resistance to sprouting, In short, it is a first choice variety for growers from Yorkshire through to Scotland. But the advantages don’t stop in the north, the majority of soft Group 4s are sown in the east and west serving the UK’s bioethanol and soft milling homes; KWS Zealum’s good package will be of benefit to growers here too.
One of the main reasons for supporting KWS Zealum is that it brings additional genetic diversity to the soft wheat sector, which is dominated by Cougar crosses.
