This new high yielding (non-hybrid) six row variety may well challenge the six row hybrids. The yield and grain quality are similar to Volume and it is just 2% behind the top hybrid on the Recommended List. It has very stiff straw, excellent disease ratings and early maturity. It is shorter in the straw than the hybrids, so may not be as popular for those looking for very tall growth to suppress blackgrass. However, the seed will be considerably cheaper and Funky will be an attractive proposition to some. It produces a very good specific weight, better than many 2 rows, though screening losses will be higher.

Should any plants appear in seed crops, they will be rogued out or the crop will be rejected.
