Breeding insights

"SUNNINGDALE is an exceptional variety for the North. SUNNINGDALE yields at least 6% more than all the conventional 2-row varieties in the North and is the only variety to exceed 10 t/ha treated yields in this area in the last 4 years. Early ripeness provides an opportunity to drill following winter oilseed rape crops earlier, in the quest for increased yield."
