Extraordinarily productive fodder wheat

Benefits:

  • Outstanding grain yields, top class in the EU varietal tests 2014 and 2015
  • TORP achieves its superior yield through a high number of grains per ear
  • Medium-late, short-stalked intensive type with very good standability
  • Ideal after leaf crops as well as after stubble wheat, not recommended after maize
  • Particularly cultivable also on livestock farms with high N-replenishment from organic fertilizers
  • Excellent leaf health and standability
  • Recommended for medium to better locations in Northern Germany
