It is perfect for growing for low grade milling wheat exports based on the 11.5% protein contracts for ukp cargoes.
KWS Lili is a relatively high tillering variety suiting most situations. It has good resistance to most diseases including an all important, solid 5.9 rating for Septoria tritici plus an 8 for mildew and 7 for yellow rust.
Rated 8 for lodging with PGRs KWS Lili is relatively short and stiff and stands well in the field. Two days behind JB Diego, it is a mid-maturity wheat.
