Breeding insights

"GALLANT still has a place in the Group 1 sector. Strong protein (gluten) characteristics mean certain millers require GALLANT in their grists (as a necessity) and all millers will continue to purchase as a Group 1. Early maturity leads to a stress free harvest as GALLANT can be in the barn while other Group 1 varieties are still finishing off. Strong HFN adds to harvest security."
