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
  • Healthy variety with medium growth length
  • Cost-effective - inexpensive plant protection and low fertilization effort
  • Maturity group 00: middle 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. In case of an assumed grain yield of 3 t/ha, 45 kg P₂O₅/ha, 51 kg K₂O/ha and 15 kg MgO/ha should be used. For different grain yields, the amount of fertilizer should be adapted. Green manure is also possible within the crop
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.
