Off the back of the positives surrounding OSR, breeders are selecting more vigorous varieties and there are seed treatments available which have been shown to improve vigour too. We have also seen innovation in the establishment schemes and pack sizes of seed are now available. Here the breeder, Wynnstay and the grower are sharing the risk of the crop. We are hopeful this sharing of risk will help maintain oilseed rape as the go-to break crop. In terms of varieties LG Aviron is one of the most exciting hybrid varieties to join the AHDB Recommended List in 2021/22, highest gross output across the UK with exceptional autumn and spring vigour. There are other options to consider such as Dazzler, a high-yielding hybrid from DSV with excellent agronomics that has resistance to Turnip Yellow Virus. It will also be packed in 1.8mil seed packs rather than 1.5mil seed packs with this additional seed coming at no extra cost. For those requiring Clearfield Technology, DK Imprint has the heist ever performance from a Clearfield variety, as well as rapid autumn development and strong disease resistance.
