We’re excited to be introducing our new winter spelt variety Convoitise, bred by French breeder Lemaire. After trialling Convoitise for the first-time last year, we were initially impressed by its standing ability.
Once the sample had been analysed, we found that Convoitise naturally dehulled to a greater extent than Zollernspelz. Through comparing the trials result as seen below to Zollernspelz, we believed and still do that Convoitise will be the spelt variety of choice.
Spelt is enjoying a revival in popularity in artisan breads and cereals and is increasingly employed as a component in livestock rations.
Convoitise winter spelt is suitable for conventional and organic farmers. The variety naturally has a low input requirement and a strong disease profile with good resistance to Septoria tritici, yellow rust and mildew.
It has good protein content, a high specific weight and is average to tall in height.
We are extremely excited about bringing Convoitise to the market due to its potential to perform on farm and in the mill. Seed stocks are limited so please get in touch early if you would like to give it a try.
