Syngenta have a strong, high yielding winter wheat portfolio with lots to offer growers. Graham has proved incredibly popular as a secure, low risk option for the feed wheat market. Shabras is a high yielding hard feed wheat variety which yields exceptionally well in mary areas such as light land, second wheat and in black grass situations. Our new variety Gleam is an outstanding variety both in terms of yield, disease resistance and agronomics. To add to our current portfolio, SY Insitor is in Recommened List Candidate trials for harvest 2019. Find out more information on each of the varieties below.
Meet the breeders
We have been breeding your varieties for over 35 years, bringing better wheat varieties to growers faster, with double haploid breeding.
Hybrid wheats - David Feuerhelm
“I have worked for Syngenta for just over 10 years and enjoy spending time in the field in the breeding material trying to find the plant that will eventually become a variety of the future. Putting everything that the farmer needs in a single wheat variety is still the biggest challenge for a wheat breeder: yield, grain quality and agronomic characteristics are all a key focus for assessing lines."
Conventional wheats - Duncan Warner
“I have worked with Syngenta for 10 years and I’m focused on breeding the next generation of winter wheat. Challenges of wheat breeding include keeping up with nature, environments and the ever-changing disease landscape but that’s what makes every day different!”
