NEW: Introducing RGT Saki feed wheat

One of the most exciting feed wheats to hit the Recommended List in recent years looks set to earn a place on conventional and organic farms across the country from next autumn onwards.

RGT Saki is the new outstanding group 4 soft wheat variety.

Revelation has been our top seller since it was first introduced in 2013. However, we feel RGT Saki could be the new replacement for Revelation in the long term.

One of the most exciting feed wheats to hit the Recommended List in recent years looks set to earn a place on conventional and organic farms across the country from next autumn onwards.

Revelation has been our top seller since it was first introduced in 2013. However, we feel RGT Saki could be the new replacement for Revelation in the long term.

This includes high-pressure inoculated yellow rust trials in the east and a well-grown trial on Oxfordshire, where yellow rust was firmly established as the main disease at the T2 timing.

Levels of Septoria tritici are relatively low across England due to the dry weather, but it was noticeable in our own untreated second wheat trials at Ickleton, on the Cambridgeshire/Essex border. RGT Saki looks as clean, if not more so, than Extase, which has the highest Septoria tritici rating of a UK fully recommended variety.

The same goes for other trials we have seen, reinforcing last year’s observations when late Septoria came in after very wet weather in June.

RGT Saki is a really hard-working variety that delivers. We expect it to prove popular for growers looking to achieve the full potential from their crops, whether they farm conventionally or organically.

RGT Saki – key points

  • Excellent treated (104) and untreated (86) yields
  • Exceptional disease resistance – yellow rust 8, brown rust 8, Septoria tritici 6.8, mildew 6, fusarium 6
  • OWBM resistant
  • Good grain quality
  • Good straw strength
  • Flexible – drilling date, rotational position, light/heavy soils
