Outlaw is AGT’s first conventional OP canola variety to hit the paddock. We started breeding OP canola in 2016 in response to calls from growers for alternatives to the ‘hybrid only’ approach that many seed companies were taking and are excited to see this low risk, financially profitable variety in the hands of growers.
Outlaw (tested as AGTC0017) is very quick to flower and has shown its best performance relative to other varieties in low to medium environments. Regardless of the yield level however, Outlaw has outperformed AV Garnet. Combined with its very impressive grain oil content, we believe that Outlaw provides growers with an improvement in profit and risk management over both AV Garnet and Nuseed Diamond.
While Outlaw belongs to the group A blackleg resistance group, its quantitative resistance rating of RMR (untreated) should provide growers with a useful level of protection in the target environments.
Commercial quantities of Outlaw may be available through AGT Affiliates, or your local retailer.
Outlaw is able to be traded between growers upon the completion of a License Agreement as part of AGT’s Seed Sharing™ initiative.
Outlaw is protected by Plant Breeders Rights (PBR) and all production (except seed saved for planting) is liable to an End Point Royalty (EPR), which funds future plant breeding.
Outlaw growers will be subject to a Growers License Agreement that acknowledges that an EPR of $10/tonne + GST has to be paid on all production other than seed saved for planting.
