“Elgar is the latest of our very high yielding OP Winter Oilseed Rape varieties to reach the market” announced Bob Miles, Elsoms Agricultural Director. “Elgar is an excellent high yielding, early maturing variety with impressive all-round agronomic and disease resistance scores, so it is no surprise that we have received a lot of interest from merchants following the trials results from this year’s harvest,” commented Bob, pictured checking a seed crop of Elgar.

“Elgar’s results are very impressive when compared to current market leading varieties,” says Elsoms OSR Breeder, Mark Nightingale. “Farmers are always concerned as to how trial results will translate into field performance,“ commented Mark, “so Elgar’s excellent straw characteristics should prove to be very attractive,” he added. “Although currently only in RL Trials we will have a significant quantity of seed available for 2015 sowing,” concluded Mark.
