Graham, is our most popular winter wheat because of its consistency and high Western yields. It can be grown on heavy and lighter soil types, but it should always be grown as first wheat as its second wheat performance is relatively poor. Graham has a flexible sowing window; it has a relatively slow speed of development in the autumn so ideal for early-mid drilling, yet it moves relatively quickly in the spring. It has a prostrate autumn growth habit with medium to high tillering capacity, so seed rates can be reduced. We expect Graham to be hugely popular again this year.
