*GERTY KWS is the control

GERTY KWS is an established Energy Beet in the UK and 2014 will represent its third commercial year in the UK. Now considered the benchmark by which other Energy Beet varieties are compared GERTY KWS set standards for high DM yield and low dirt tares and its consistency over seasons has seen it widely adopted on farm. GERTY KWS sits slightly higher than other Energy Beet and this combined with its smooth skin will help minimise dirt tares on farm. The corner stone variety for all UK growers.
