The AHDB Recommended List for winter oilseed rape 2019/20 shows that Wembley continues to be one of the stalwarts of the East/West region where its consistently high gross output keeps it in the premier league as fully recommended.
In the clubroot resistant spot for both East/West and North regions, Mentor is still the only fully recommended variety. It is a restored hybrid with a specific recommendation for its resistance to the common strains of clubroot. Mentor has high resistance to lodging and is very stiff-stemmed at maturity.LSPB’s new clubroot resistant variety Crome now joins Mentor as P1 Recommended and brings a very worthwhile improvement in gross output, as well as sharing Mentor’s high resistance to lodging and its stem stiffness.
For the future, we have further oilseed rape varieties, such as Croozer, progressing through the trials system as we continue our breeding programme which is now focused on hybrid varieties with their improved yield and agronomics added to their consistency in performance.
