Leeds

Follow the Leeder!

  • The highest yielding UK recommended Group 4 soft
  • Top yielding soft North, East and West
  • Outstanding first wheat and great second wheat
  • Suitable for distilling and uks exports
  • Highest specific weight of any Group 4 soft

At 104% of controls, Leeds is the highest yielding nationally recommended soft wheat – 2% ahead of the control variety JB Diego.

It excels as a first wheat and on light soils and, while it is grown UK-wide, its yields are outstanding in the North.

Leeds is a fast developer and so best suits mid-September drilling onwards. Its vigorous growth means it can compete with blackgrass and later sowing.

Leeds’ 7 rating for yellow rust helps with disease diversification on the farm, but watch mildew, which will need controlling.

A 7 rating for Fusarium – one of the best on the UK RL –helps protect grain quality in a wet season and where maize is also grown.
