Oilseed Rape

We have a long and successful track record in oilseed rape breeding with a strong market presence. The current AHDB Recommended List includes newly-listed Flemming, Respect, clubroot resistant Crome and Croozer – with Resort as the only listed HEAR variety. For the future, we have varieties progressing through the trials system as we continue our breeding programme which is focused on hybrids with improved yield and agronomics added to consistency in performance.

Murray

Murray is very high yielding with exceptional RlmS Phoma resistance. It has very good Light Leaf spot scores, mid-maturity and is very vigorous- particularly in the spring.

Crome

Crome is a restored hybrid with a Specific Recommendation (Sp)
by AHDB for the UK in 2022/23 for growing on land infected
with common strains of clubroot. It has a high gross output, is early
flowering with a high yield, good stem stiffness and resistance to lodging.

Vegas

Vegas is very high yielding with exceptional RlmS Phoma resistance. It has very good Light Leaf spot scores, mid-maturity and is very vigorous - particularly in the spring.

Croozer

Croozer is a restored hybrid with a Specific Recommendation (Sp)
by AHDB for the E/W region in 2022/23 for growing on land infected with common strains of clubroot. It has a high gross output, is early maturing
with a high oil content and yield, and very good resistance to Stem canker.

Flemming

Flemming is a restored hybrid with a Recommendation by AHDB for the E/W region in 2022/23. It has high resistance to Stem canker from a new major gene called RlmS and is also resistant to TuYV. It has a high gross output, good stem stiffness and resistance to lodging.

Respect

Respect is a restored hybrid with a Recommendation by AHDB for the E/W region in 2022/23. It has a high gross output with high resistance to Stem canker from a new major Phoma resistance gene called RlmS, good stem stiffness and resistance to lodging.
