Breeders comments

Coota made its mark in southern NSW, but has proven its ability in the north, a consistently high yielding APH variety in the NVT early sown long-term analysis (2017-2021). With a maturity and plant height very similar to LRPB Lancer, but with more than 10% higher yield, Coota looks to be a great option for growers wanting to step up to the next level of profitability. Coota has a wide sowing window, achieving competitive yield levels from late April to mid May.

By combining excellent grain size, short stature, low black-point risk and adaptation across different soil types, Coota is a variety that can be relied on to perform.

Unlike taller varieties EGA Gregory, Coolah and LRPB Flanker, Coota has very good lodging tolerance, similar to, or better than LRPB Lancer.

The yield performance, physical grain quality package and agronomic traits of Coota give it flexibility across high and low yield potential zones, and a wide planting window. High grain yield potential, compact plant height and tolerance to lodging make Coota a good option in high rainfall, high input and irrigated environments, whilst it’s excellent grain package can help in minimising risk in less favourable conditions where screenings can be an issue. In AGT crown rot evaluation trials at Narrabri, Coota has demonstrated an ability to maintain high yield in the presence of crown rot, similar to or slightly better than LRPB Lancer.
