Parentage

Breeding insights

"A hard winter wheat that really stood out for its slow growth over the winter. VERSO will be one of the latest varieties to hit stem extension, and this continues through to harvest, with later maturity than some of our other wheat varieties. Agronomic highlights include a 6 rating for Septoria tritici and very good straw strength."
