Top 3 winter wheats for this season

Winter Wheat

2023 has been another year full of extremes, including weather and market conditions, which has been underlined by the wettest harvest period for many, many years.

Variety choice is one way in which we can continue to manage risk, and selecting proven varieties which have delivered across several very different seasons is a good measure of variety resilience.

Syngenta actively select varieties for yield stability and we have seen that in GRAHAM, GLEAM and SY INSITOR.

Each of the varieties are hard group 4s but have different agronomic profiles and growth habits which determine their ideal positioning on farm.

Here are some of the key reasons to consider these varieties for autumn 2023.
