NABIM Group 4 - Soft Feed Wheat
Robigus x Istabraq
2016 Market Share in England & Wales: 2%
Leeds has been a popular soft wheat. It is one of very few soft varieties that couples top yield ratings with an excellent specific weight. Recently introduced alternatives give a few options now but Leeds will still be popular, particularly on lighter soils or for later sowing. The variety is suitable for distilling and export, as well as being a quality feed wheat. Disease ratings are a bit of a mixed bag, with possibly the best fusarium resistance on the List but with poor mildew, brown rust and septoria ratings.
