Winter Wheat

Our winter wheat varieties include Breadmaking Wheat, Biscuit Wheats, Soft Feed and Hard Feed Wheats.

Winter Barley

Our winter barley range offers popular Malting Barleys, High Yielding Feed Barleys and a selection of Hybrid Barleys. 

Pulses

View Varieties >>

Winter beans are the classic pulse crop for heavier land that is difficult to work in the spring. Though the preferred method of establishment is by drilling, ploughing-in remains an option. Early crop development reduces their susceptibility to early summer drought. Winter beans can often out-yield spring beans though, in most seasons, there is little between the two crops.

Pale hilum varieties of both winter and spring varieties can achieve premiums for export into human consumption markets, though winter varieties can often be susceptible to more staining and are therefore seen as less desirable.

Oilseed Rape

View Varieties >>

Our Oilseed rape varieties offers excellent yields, we also have a number of varieties that have useful agronomics in terms of early maturity, stiff straw and good resistance; to light leaf spot.

Hybrid Rye

View Varieties >>

With its huge yield potential, flexible drilling dates, vigorous growth habit and very early maturity, it provides growers with the opportunity for increased flexibility, in terms of the position of energy crops in their rotation.

Introducing Autumn Seeds 2019

This year there are some exciting new additions to the recommended list which have raised the bar either in terms of yield or disease resistance. There will be new challenges with the loss of Deter (clothianidin) and chlorothalonil (for ramularia and Septoria tritici), but it is pleasing to see particularly on the latter that this year we have the variety with the highest septoria tritici resistance ever seen, along with others with very good resistance.

From a seed treatment point of view, it is disappointing to see that we have lost Deter, Thiram, Mesurol and now Austral Plus is the next on the list. Seed treatments present the perfect method of accurately targeting small doses of active ingredient to very efficiently combat the target pest or disease. The alternative, if one exists, is often a blanket spray approach using much higher rates of active ingredients delivered less precisely.

2019 Wheat Update

In terms of wheat varieties, it is pleasing to see that there are a multitude of options which growers can consider that don’t have any real weakness, by having both very good yield packages and agronomics. KWS Extase has rightly been grabbing the majority of the headlines with its fantastic septoria tritici and extremely high untreated yield, the main negative seems to be that there just won’t be enough supply to meet demand this year! There is also a new highest yielding wheat in LG Skyscraper, and also some now established wheats that we still expect to be very popular, which are the 3 G’s, Gleam, RGT Gravity and Graham.

From a quality wheat point of view milling wheats will still be popular with varieties like RGT Skyfall and KWS Zyatt competing with the majority of feed wheats on farm. We also have a new biscuit wheat in KWS Firefly, which again raises the bar in terms of septoria tritici and is refreshing to see another variety with two 8’s for standing come onto the list.

2019 Barley Update

On the barley front there are a range of new two row feed types that are closing the gap on the hybrid yield advantage, and our pick of the 2 row options are Valerie (the highest untreated yield, extremely good specific weight, and very stiff strawed) and Surge which again has a very sound agronomic package, providing the consistency growers are looking for. SY Kingsbarn is an exciting new addition on the hybrid front, having one of the highest specific weights on the recommended list, as well as being both stiff er strawed and higher yielding than current favourite Bazooka. It is also exciting that there will be a couple of varieties with BYDV tolerance available, with more expected to come through which are more suited for UK conditions.

With malting barleys, Craft had a good year last year and we think that this will be the same again.

2019 OSR Update

Oilseed rape has had a multitude of challenges on farm, particularly surrounding establishment with issues regarding moisture and cabbage stem flea beetle. On the back of this breeders are selecting more vigorous varieties and there are seed treatments available which have been shown to improve vigour. Perhaps what is more intriguing are some establishment schemes which are now available. The KOEP (KWS oilseed establishment partnership) has been set up in line with the conventional variety Blazen which has been specifically selected for its autumn vigour. Here KWS, Wynnstay and the grower are sharing the risk of the crop with a significantly lower up front seed cost and the rest only payable if the crop is established by the 1st November. We are hopeful this sharing of risk will help maintain oilseed rape as the go-to break crop.
