Ease of management

Sunder is relatively short, with vigorous early growth, a long flowering period and medium maturity date.

Sunder is a slightly shorter plant-type than other InVigor spring hybrids, and has strong scores for stem stiffness and lodging resistance. It flowers early and benefits from medium maturity allowing the full development of its high oil content before a

reasonably timed harvest.

Red = Low: 1–4 Orange = Medium: 5–6 Green =  High 7–9


Higher scores reflect that the variety shows the characteristic to a higher degree. Data extracted from AHDB DL 2018/19
