KWS Extase came onto the market in 2019 and is the highest yielding Group 2 variety with excellent grain quality for the bread milling market.
It has an excellent agronomic package with an untreated yield of 95% and a score of 8.1 for Septoria Tritici - the highest on the Recommend List.
With the withdrawal of many key fungicides, especially the loss of chlorothalonil, choosing varieties with strong genetic resistance to key diseases is the vital for growers to get the most out of their crops.
It is best drilled end of September onwards and has proved to be a good 2nd wheat.
KWS Extase seed is going to be in short supply for the coming Autumn so please get in touch with the office if you are interested in growing some.
For those with KWS Extase in the ground this season, farm-saving some of your own seed will be a good option providing the quality and germination is ok - please get in touch for details and prices.
