RAGT’s grass breeding programme aims to produce high yielding, high quality varieties with excellent resistance to disease (in particular crown rust and dreschlera). Varieties are screened across three locations in the UK before entering the National List trials.
RGT Kirial - This hybrid tetraploid has performed very well in both NL and RL trials and has been on the RL since 2012. It performs particularly strongly in the second and third harvest years, having the highest yield of all tetraploid hybrids on the RL in the third year. Excellent disease resistance and very good quality have made RGT Kirial a popular choice for the last two years.
> Excellent disease resistance
> High yields, particularly in years 2 & 3
