Cougar added to new RL as high yielding soft group 4
Torch cementing its place as highest yielding Group 3
The farmer-friendly barnfiller
Consistency of yield is key
We are delighted to announce that Cougar, the new soft group 4 has been added to the 2013/14 Recommended List. Cougar's strong all-round disease package and yield make it an ideal variety for managing disease risk on farm giving a degree flexibility for fungicide application timings.
It has a 7 for Septoria tritici - equal best on the list, OWBM resistance and it is short with good lodging resistance. In terms of its development, Cougar develops early making it a good option in either early or late sown situations. It is also late maturing which extends its grain filling period delivering its headline yields seen in trials to date. Click on the link below to download a variety information sheet on Cougar.

If the promise of high yields are too tempting to resist, take a look at how the top yielders perform over years. Not every variety will deliver top yields every year.
Initial results from 2012 official trials show that Torch has not only consolidated its position as the highest yielding Group 3 variety but that it is showing remarkable consistency over 4 very different seasons.
