High yield potential under a wide sowing window – April till late June
Excellent disease resistance profile but also responds to high inputs
Heavy grain and high test weights, plus low sprouting risk
GRAHAM wheat is a new exciting feed wheat bred by Syngenta in France and developed in New Zealand in conjunction with Cropmark Seeds Ltd as head licensee. Being from France, GRAHAM has a different disease profile to UK bred feed wheat.
In its first year of FAR trials GRAHAM produced outstanding yields across a wide range of sites, with yield ranging in Canterbury from 11.3 t/ha under dryland to 17.5 t/ha in Methven. Yields were constant across the wide range of environments found in Southland and Canterbury.
