Breeding insights

"The highest yielding variety with full UK recommendation. What’s not to like? SHABRAS has outstanding second wheat yields plus strong performances on heavy and light soils. Its very early maturity coupled with its robust Hagberg Falling Number means it is a safe bet for harvest."
