The Fully Recommended HOLL Variety

V316OL is fully recommended by AHDB for the whole UK and has been shown to perform at the level of the highest 00 varieties

Breeder's View

  • DEKALB & Bayer,
    "V316OL High Oleic, Low Linolenic oil quality which gives the oil a larger market than conventional 00 oil and consequently a potential premium to the grower. This variety is fully recommended by AHDB for the whole UK and has been shown to perform at the level of the highest 00 varieties. It has excellent lodging resistance and good resistance to phoma and light leaf spot."

Autumn Vigour
Good autumn vigour, medium early flowering and early to medium maturity 


Disease Resistance
Good all round disease resistance


Recommendations for Growers

  • V316OL has high yields with excellent oil quality at less than 3% Linolenic acid and over 75% Oleic acid, maximising the ability to meet quality standards without compromising yield.
  • Medium autumn growth habit means V316OL CL is suitable for the early as well as the main drilling window.
  • Low Disturbance establishment systems may reduce germination of non-HOLL volunteers and improve quality.
  • Sow at a seed rate appropriate to achieve an even plant stand of 25-30 plants/m2 in spring.
  • A taller height means PGRs should be considered at stem extension especially when growing conditions are favourable and a large canopy exists to manage height.
  • Ensure the Green Area Index is accurately determined at the start of spring growth to guide appropriate nitrogen rates for optimal canopy size. Lodging risk with DK Exclaim is low but there may be a benefit from PGR use to optimise the canopy structure.
