OSR Hybrid Varieties Available From James Mortimer Ltd.

As we approach the 2016 Oilseed Rape harvest, you may wish to look at potential OSR varieties for next year.

Hybrid varieties offer desirable varietal traits such as pod shatter resistance, which can provide security if there is a stormy build up to the rape harvest.

Please see attached the DK Oilseed Rape harvest update, which provides information on their hybrid varieties.

More information on Dekalb’s Hybrid range is available at: https://www.dekalb.co.uk/product-catalogue/oilseed-rape

At James Mortimer we can provide you with the following DK varieties:

                DK Exalte

                DK Exception

                DK Extravert

                Clearfield Imperial

If you require any information on these Hybrid varieties or any other varieties, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01377 253314.

KWS Lili

This week, KWS UK has launched Lili Week.

KWS Lili is part of KWS’ Dynamic Wheat portfolio; varieties with high yields and good physical grain quality which lead to more market opportunities. In addition, it possesses solid agronomic characteristics to help reduce risk in crop management.

KWS Lili offers:

  • Superb export potential, rated positive for ukp.
  • NABIM group 2 quality, group 4 yields.
  • Very strong disease ratings: Mildew (9), Yellow Rust (7).
  • Consistency across regions and land type. Suits both 1st and 2nd wheat slots.

This is our second year selling KWS Lili at Mortimers; last year our seed crop on wold land proved to be the highest yielding wheat on farm when compared with hard feed wheats.

By way of incentive, all Lili orders placed by Monday 1st August will receive a very competitive seed price and a fixed payment date of Tuesday 15th November.

And in conjuntion with KWS UK, we will be offering an added incentive of the liquid variety (Subject minimum tonnage) on all orders placed.

Although Siskin has made the headlines this year, KWS Lili is still a strong group 2 and overall wheat. (See attached datasheet for additional details).

Please contact the office for any other information you may require on variety choice and seed treatments.
