Renegade TT is one of the first of AGT’s TT canola varieties 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 these low risk, financially profitable varieties in the hands of growers.
We think Renegade TT (tested as AGTC0034) is a great ‘all-rounder’. A little slower to flower than our other release Bandit TT, between HyTTec® Trident and HyTTec® Trophy, Renegade TT goes against the flow, providing growers with the benefits of OP canola with the profitability often expected from a hybrid. At AGT sites between two and three tonne per hectare, Renegade TT’s profitability (sown at 4.5kg/ha) was $53/ha higher than HyTTec® Trident (sown at 2.5kg/ha) and $24/ha lower than HyTTec® Trophy (sown at 2.5kg/ha).
While Renegade TT belongs to the group A blackleg resistance group, its quantitative resistance rating of MR should provide growers with a useful level of protection in the target environments.
Commercial quantities of Renegade TT may be available through AGT Affiliates, or your local retailer.
Renegade TT is able to be traded between growers upon the completion of a License Agreement as part of AGT’s Seed Sharing™ initiative.
Renegade TT 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.
Renegade TT 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.
