Breeders comments

We have had great success working with a germplasm pool that heavily features the famous variety Wyalkatchem, delivering Mace, and then Scepter to growers. Through the success of these landmark varieties, we have been able to increase our investment into breeding, with the intention to round out our portfolio of varieties to provide an offering for all unique wheat growing regions and use patterns in Australia.

Denison (tested as WAGT734) has emerged out of a Mace cross, and caught our attention with its very unique maturity relative to other commonly grown varieties. Up until now, there has been a gap in suitable wheat varieties for the sowing opportunity between early April (winter wheats) and late April/early May (mid-slow spring wheats) in most regions of SA and Victoria.

Denison is a slow-very slow spring wheat, a maturity that is very uncommon, but fits the sowing window of mid to late April that traditionally has been uncatered for. Although the mid to late April planting opportunity may only account for a small percentage of the total sowing program, we are very proud to offer a well adapted and suitable variety for this purpose.

Denison also offers good physical grain quality and has an APW quality classification in SA/Victoria.
