Varieties from the SU programme are screened at an early stage at SU UK’s Rosalie research station with promising material being progressed through the AHDB trialling system. Acorn and Chanson were selected by the AHDB to progress onto the current Candidate list, with Acorn being chosen primarily for its promising malting potential and excellent resistance to Rhynchosporium, whilst Chanson represents a real step forward for yield for a Null – Lox variety.
