Commodus CL Barley

Seed available in 2021

KEY FEATURES

  • High yielding, quick-mid maturing variety
  • Agronomically similar to Compass
  • Similar yield potential to Compass based on preliminary InterGrain and NVT national yield trials.
  • Ideally suited to lighter soils and medium-low rainfall environments
  •  CCN resistance and useful levels of spot form net blotch resistance
  • Excellent grain size with high retention levels and low screenings.
  • Moderate hectolitre weight
  • Similar lodging tolerance and head loss risk to Compass and may require agronomic management
  • Further quality testing is required to make an assessment on potential malting quality

Kastar Peas

Seed available in 2021

    • improved tolerance to commonly used residual Group B imidazolinone. herbicides
    • response to residual sulfonylurea and post-emergent flumetsulam is
      similar to that of PBA Wharton
  • Mid flowering
  • Erect growth habit with semi-leafless plant type
  • Disease resistance profile similar to PBA Wharton powdery mildew
  • Pod shatter-resistant at maturity
  • Early to mid maturing suitable for crop-topping

Kingbale Oat’s

Seed available in 2021

KEY FEATURES

  • A world first IMI tolerant oaten hay variety
  • Mid-flowering, single gene IMI tolerant oaten hay variety with improved tolerance to soil residual imidazolinone herbicides
  • An ideal variety for use where there are IMI residue concerns from previous crops
  • Tall variety with good early vigour
  • Preliminary data shows Kingbale has a similar disease and agronomic profile to Wintaroo
  • CCN resistant
  • Rust (likely susceptible) will require proactive management
  • Yield information is currently limited Kingbale is a single gene IMI tolerant variety.
  • The earliest date a full chemical registration for use in oaten hay production is March 2021 however, this is subject to 2019 field testing results and growers are advised that delays may occur.
