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 Syntilla - This Italian diploid started UK NL trials in 2016 but is already listed and doing well in France. Its high yield across both harvest years, coupled with very good drought tolerance and excellent disease resistance make this variety one to watch. A limited amount of commercial seed will be available for spring 2019.
> Consistently high yielding
> Very good agronomic characteristics
