DEKALB OSR varieties Demo

 

Our DEKALB Cereals Live line-up focussed on OSR varieties offering the best cabbage stem flea beetle defence, the greatest reliability and agronomic flexibility, extra insurance against TuYV and the most reliable Clearfield performance.

Standing out in the plots are triple eight breakthrough, DK Exstar; outstanding new fast developer, DK Extremus; the first varieties with TuYV resistance in a trusted DEKALB background, DK Excited and DK Expectation; and new generation Clearfield leader DK Imprint CL.

All carry the much sought-after DEKALB combination of vigorous establishment and fast autumn development as well as excellent foliar disease resistance, pod shatter resistance and other agronomic traits delivering the least OSR risk.

Alongside the full 18-strong DEKALB range for 2020, full details of Bayer’s Enhanced Establishment Scheme – crediting growers of DK Exstar, DK Extremus and DK Excited with £100/bag where pressures prove too intense for crops to establish – are also available from this year’s virtual stand.
