Watch our Winter Wheat Varieties Tour 2021!

Just like in 2020, due to COVID-19 restrictions we were unable to host our large-scale Wheat Variety Trials Open Day at Mountfair Farming.

However, once again, we have brought the Open Day to you virtually as, last week, Seed Director Paul Huntley and Agrochemical & Technical Director David Cairns took a tour through all 24 varieties and two seed treatments.

In the 65-minute video, which can be watched below, Paul and David chat through all of the varieties – including new varieties LG Prince, LG Illuminate, LG Astronomer, Merit, Swallow, KWS Cranium and RGT Wolverine – highlighting their strengths and weaknesses, which will hopefully help to inform your varietal choices.

WATCH THE VIDEO HERE…

If you don’t have time to watch the full video, don’t worry! You can click on each of the wheat varieties below, which will give you information on that specific variety – as well as the clip on that variety that was recorded in the main video.
