SY Insitor is a popular growers’ variety, you get out what you put into SY Insitor. Suitable for all regions and soil types with particularly good performance on lighter soils. Drill from mid September to late October. A high specific weight (78.2kg/hl), tall strong straw when managed correctly and good septoria resistance of 6.5, makes this variety a useful feed variety in the North and West. A weaker yellow rust resistance means it requires a robust spring fungicide programme, but as seen from the treated yields it can be overcome. A good partner with Champion and RGT Stokes.
