KWS Santiago

Celebrate the Yield!

  • Vigorous, very high yielding Group 4
  • Consistent over contrasting seasons
  • Top choice for the East
  • Orange Wheat Blossom Midge resistant

KWS Santiago is a consistent, vigorous, feed wheat and an established favourite, particularly in the Eastern Counties.

Despite being a slow developer, its straw characteristics mean it is probably best sown from mid-September onwards.

It has prostrate autumn growth and is slow to get to GS31, but after this it really gets away, producing a large, aggressive canopy that supports long, strong, grain-fill.

Similar in height to JB Diego and Evolution, it needs a robust PGR programme to maintain yields. With medium-ranked disease resistance ratings KWS Santiago will benefit from a full fungicide regime to help it reach full potential.
