DSV UK
Stand: 413

DSV is a breeding company which has been operating in the UK for more than 40 years. The company breeds and sells many different agricultural crops including oilseed rape, winter wheat, barley, grasses, maize, cover crops and lupins. DSV UK is based at Wardington near Banbury where its marketing and breeding teams are situated. The company also hosts winter wheat National List trials at this site.

DSV UK is a subsidiary of a German company known as DSV Saatveredelung which is an international plant breeding company. For nearly 100 years the company has focused on breeding, production and sales of agricultural and amenity crops.

1,500 farms produce premium-quality, single-variety seed for DSV. The company as a whole sells 51,000 tonnes of seed a year. To do this the company relies on a 600-strong national and international workforce.

DSV has subsidiaries in Denmark, France, the Netherlands, Poland, Argentina and the Ukraine and maintains a global presence through our shareholdings, marketing organisations and partners around the world.

DSV UK has been breeding oilseed rape varieties for over 50 years. Our breeders use two different hybridisation systems MSL and Ogura to bring different characteristics and traits into our diverse range of oilseed rape varieties. Over the years we have developed the breeding to include traits such as TuYV resistance, HOLL, Clearfield, clubroot resistance, improved vigour, high oil content and resistance to pod shatter.

DSV UK have two newly listed hybrid oilseed rapes this year which have joined the Recommended List. Darling and Dazzler combine which high gross outputs with TuYV (Turnip Yellow Virus), RLM7+ phoma stem canker and pod shatter resistances to deliver simple maintenance and low growing costs. They are designed to deliver sustained early vigour in the field to grow through pest and disease attacked whilst exhibiting a range of features that support them from canopy development through to harvest.

DSV also has a new high gross margin variety in AHDB 20/21 candidate lists trials. Voltage combines agronomic features optimised for modern low-input production which could make it a future game-changer for growers.

DSV will also be introducing a new BYDV tolerant variety to the UK market this year.

Sensation is a very early maturing winter barley variety with good straw stability that is proving to be a very high performer in trials across Europe.

In addition to BYDV tolerance Sensation has very good overall disease resistance scores and could be a very popular option for UK growers increasingly worried about the threat of BYDV.

DSV UK also boasts to the breeder of the UK’s cleanest wheat variety, Theodore. A group four variety, Theodore joined the 2020/21 RL last year with an 8.2 score for Septoria resistance, a 9 for yellow rust and a 7 for brown rust combined with a height of 82cm that gives it good resistance to lodging.

DSV UK’s breeding station is located in North Oxfordshire where Septoria pressure is high and disease resistance has always been a high priority for the breeding programme.

But it is only recently, with the removal of chemistry and changes in pathogen virulence, that resistance is being taken even more seriously.

Phoenix CL


Phoenix CL shows outstanding autumn vigour with a good seed yield of 102%. With an oil content of 44.7%, it has a benchmark disease performance with a 6 for light leaf spot and a 6 for stem canker. It also has enhanced pod shattering resistance for extra flexibility at harvest

TuYV - The invisible danger and what can be done against it


The Turnip Yellows Virus (TuYV) is spreading across Europe’s oilseed rape fields. Transmitted by aphids, the virus causes damage to plants that is difficult to detect and results in yield losses of up to 30%. The only effective measure is to grow resistant varieties of oilseed rape.

TuYV - How the virus spreads


The Turnip Yellows Virus (TuYv) continues to spread all over Europe. Therefore it is important to understand how the virus is transmitted. The only way to counter the virus is to use resistant varieties. Secure your yields with varieties from innovative DSV breeding.

The UK's cleanest variety


Theodore

According to DSV’s UK wheat breeder Dr. Matt Kerton, the headline features of the company’s new group 4 variety winter wheat Theodore could make it a real game changer.
“Theodore joined the 2020/21 RL last year with an 8.2 score for Septoria resistance, a 9 for yellow rust and a 7 for brown rust combined with a height of 82cm that gives it good resistance to lodging.
“The DSV UK breeding station is located in North Oxfordshire where Septoria pressure is high and disease resistance has always been a high priority for the breeding programme.
“But it is only recently, with the removal of chemistry and changes in pathogen virulences, that resistance is being taken even more seriously.”
Theodore has performed very well in the trials network over the last three years with high treated and untreated yields, he says.
“More and more farmers are sensibly looking at the economics of a variety rather than just its potential yield. Theodore is very much a variety for today and a great choice for the conscientious grower.
“Its superb combination of disease resistance and agronomic properties points the way to genuinely lower cost wheat production in the future.”

Farm-safety-640x360.png
The Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland (HSENI) alongside the Farm Safety Partnership (FSP), has named new farm safety champions and commended the outstanding work on farm safety that has been carried out in the farming community in the last 20 years.

Two of these champions are Malcom Downey, retired principal inspector for the Agri/Food team in HSENI and Harry Sinclair, current chair of the Farm Safety Partnership and former president of the Ulster Farmers’ Union (UFU).

Improving farm safety is the key aim of HSENI’s and the FSP’s work and...
