Organic Winter Wheat

Costello

Costello

Costello comes from the same UK agents as JB Diego and as such, the variety is being dubbed as the new, improved JB Diego and it’s not hard to see why. Costello offers consistently high untreated yields across the country paired with an exceptional grain quality. It is the best group 4 hard feed variety in terms of protein, hagberg and specific weight and we are already aware of a feed home which has put this variety on its list of preferred varieties.
Costello winter wheat is short, so we would advise this variety to be grown on your best fields.

Cougar

COUGAR WINTER WHEAT

Cougar winter wheat has now been removed from the Recommended List as it does not have a place in the conventional market. However, it is still a variety to consider when being grown in the organic sector. It has an extremely high untreated yield, which is down to its high resistance to disease (it held the highest score on the recommended list for Septoria before it was removed), but it can be susceptible to eyespot. With less than 200 hectares in the ground for seed production, it’s market share will be low at less than 1% as most of the acreage is for organic use.
Orange Blossom Midge resistant.
