Dynamic Wheats is a sponsored series brought to you in association with KWS.
With many farmers facing wheat prices below the cost of production this harvest, there is a real need for greater focus on growing quality wheats to broaden marketing options, experts say.
The second in this three-part series from KWS looks at how a new wave of varieties on the Recommended List could help boost margins over feed grain and rebuild the UK’s status as an exporter of quality wheat to global markets.
The arrival of KWS Trinity to the 2015 HGCA Recommended List has concentrated interest in the quality wheat sector with promises of high yields, good disease resistance and milling quality grain.
KWS Lili has the potential to match the barn-filling yields of the better Group 4s while retaining the market flexibility and premiums of a true Group 2.
