Elias winter rye is a high yielding, early maturing population winter rye. It’s a ‘dual-purpose’ exclusive variety that’s suitable for both feeding and milling. Performing well in official trials, it was found to be the top yielding variety, outperforming Amilo, Conduct and Duckato.
This variety shows very good resistance to Ergot which makes it an excellent choice for the production of rye flour. Elias has excellent early plant growth which makes it also highly suited as both a cover crop and for biomass.
