Impressive yields and protein content


  • Constantly high yields
  • Very good formation of pod and grain with high protein content
  • Fast initial development and good standability
  • Marketing advantages due to light hilum and high thousand grain weight
  • Advantageous preceding crop for winter cereals due to a good root penetration and favorable provision of nitrogen
  • Healthy variety with medium growth length
  • Cost-effective - inexpensive plant protection and low fertilization effort
  • Maturity group 00: early ripening within this group

Cultivation recommendations:

Recommended sowing rate 55 - 60 grains/m²
Sowing depth 2-4 cm on heavy, 4-5 cm on light soils
Sowing period Mid-April until mid-May ; soil temperature ~10°C
Fertilization No N-fertilization necessary. At a grain yield of 30 dt/ha a fertilization of 48 kg P₂O₅/ha, 51 kg K₂O/ha and 15 kg MgO/ha is advised. At diverging yields the amount of fertilizer should be adjusted to the withdrawal.
Crop protection Weed control: Approved broad-spectrum herbicides during pre-emergence
Sowing method Precision sowing or drilling possible, row distance may vary depending on sowing technique (17-50 cm)
Harvest Mid-September until early October by combine harvester (flexible cutting unit), moisture 13-14%, ideal setup of threshing drum, threshing concave and sieve are crucial - risk of broken grains.
