Breeding Insight

SY Insitor is poised to fit many criteria that growers need as we enter the new decade – high yield and high quality, but also good Septoria tritici resistance, plus suitability for later drilling as we look to manage weeds, pests and diseases with a diminished crop protection armoury.
