Take a look at some of the Oilseed Rape varieties we have available for autumn 2019 - please contact the office for more details.

KWS Oilseed Rape Establishment Partnership (OEP) with new candidate conventional variety BLAZEN 

  • The KWS OEP offers a practical solution to growers with the ever increasing challenge of getting oil seed rape crops established.                                                               
  • The OEP shares the risk of establishment between the grower, merchant and breeder.
  • The initial seed cost is lower for the grower, allowing better cashflow and offers flexible seed rates.
  • BLAZEN is high yielding conventional candidate variety with multi-gene resistance to stem canker.
  • It yields well across the main OSR regions of England and has had excellent performance in KWS UK trials.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • Register with James Mortimer Ltd.
  • Purchase certified seed at lower upfront cost and drill as normal.
  • On 1st November declare the area established and pay balance on established area only.
  • For more information please contact the office.

Elevation - Conventional

  • New to the RL in 2018, Elevation is one of the highest yielding conventional varieties for our region.
  • It offers decent autumn seedling vigour in order to establish a competitive crop, and produces a good tap root in autumn to help the plant through winter.
  • Elevation has a good resistance to lodging and stem stiffness at maturity.

DK Expansion - Hybrid

  • A NEW high yielding variety to the RL with high oil potential and solid disease package.
  • It has a rapid autumn growth habit and a medium earliness of spring re-growth.
  • Slightly later to flower and medium maturity.
  • DK Expansion is relatively tall but has a lodging resistance rating of 8. It will benefit from a timely PGR program for canopy management.
  • Benefits from the Dekalb pod shatter and double phoma resistance genes.

DK Exclaim - Hybrid

  • This variety narrowly missed out on making the Recommended List, despite its high yield potential and excellent lodging resistance.
  • It has a rapid autumn growth habit which aids fast establishment to get the crop to grow away from the vulnerability of cabbage stem flea beetle damage as quickly as possible.
  • Relatively wide drilling window.
  • Benefits from the pod shatter and double phoma resistance genes which is characteristic of many of the Dekalb varieties.

DK Exalte - Hybrid

  • This consistent variety remains a popular choice with many growers with its fast speed of development in the autumn and high gross output.
  • Oil content of 45.5% and high disease resistance ratings.
  • Double phoma resistance through the RLM7 gene combined with the pod shatter resistance gene make this variety a reliable choice for farmers.

DK Exstar - Hybrid

  • This new variety offers high yield potential combined with a high oil content.
  • It has a rapid autumn growth habit which aids fast establishment to get the crop to grow away from the vulnerability of cabbage stem flea beetle damage as quickly as possible.
  • DK Exstar has a rating of 8 for both Light Leaf Spot and Stem Canker resistance and a 9 for lodging resistance.
  • Benefits from the Dekalb pod shatter and double phoma resistance genes.

DK Imperial CL - Clearfield variety

  • With cruciferous weeds and volunteer oilseed rape becoming an ever increasing problem for many oilseed rape growers, the clearfield system offers an alternative method of producing good yields without grain quality contamination issues at harvest.
  • DK Imperial CL is the mostly widely grown Clearfield variety in the UK producing a consistently decent yield and scores an 8 for lodging resistance.
  • It has a rapid autumn growth habit which is advantageous for establishing a vigorous crop to grow away from pest pressures. A PGR may be required in autumn on fertile sites for canopy management.
  • Tolerance to Clearfield herbicides Cleranda and Cleravo.
  • Sprayer hygiene throughout the season and post-harvest cultural volunteer control is essential to manage Clearfield volunteers in the rotation.
  • Group B (ALS-inhibitors) herbicides should not be solely relied upon for volunteer control.
  • Double phoma and pod shatter resistance.
