MOULTON Winter Wheat

((Duxford x Hereford) x Shepherd)

“We feel that Moulton thoroughly deserves its recommendation for all regions of the UK and offers growers the widest market outlets available for a high yielding Group 4 variety. Of the ten Group 4 soft wheat varieties on the latest AHDB Recommended List , Moulton produces the highest Hagberg Falling Number, the highest protein content and the second highest specifi c weight. In addition, it is showing promise in distilling tests and already has the uks soft wheat for export approval. We have submitted some large samples to independent biscuit flour millers and received comments that Moulton made the spec that would allow them to use it in their Group 3 grists.“ “Whether it’s the excellent Septoria resistance or its earliness of maturity Moulton lends itself to growers in all
regions from the south to the north. All four of the new wheats from Elsoms are showing robust performance and good disease resistance which is really encouraging since reliability and consistency – the hallmark of farmer’s favourites such as JB Diego (prior to yellow rust break down) – are paramount in today’s market.” “We’re expecting Moulton to be extremely popular and since C2 seed supplies are extremely limited in autumn 2017 we would suggest early ordering.” By Trevor Cope, Cope Seeds
