Breeders Insights

SAVELLO is one of our two new AHDB Recommended varieties of winter wheat this year. SAVELLO, is a soft feed, whereas SHABRAS, the other is a hard feed.  

SAVELLO offers grower a great overall variety, it has high yielding potential and a great disease profile. SAVELLO also has the added benefit of having a strong rating for Yellow Rust, which has been prevalent this season. It’s a relatively tall variety at 88cm but it also has great standing power and resistance to lodging. In our own trials we've seen that SAVELLO is very well suited to Northern regions and is an excellent second wheat.  It has a good Hagberg Falling Number and is positive for distilling making it a good variety choice in the North.
