New to the 2018/19 AHDB Candidate List, LG Jigsaw will potentially be the highest yielding hard feed wheat available on the AHDB Candidate List 2018/19. The variety encompasses key attributes associated with securing final yield potential on farm and has inherited desirable traits from its parents suggesting that it will fit the early drilling scenario.
LG Jigsaw has shown high yield potential in NL trials over two years. The variety is very consistent, similar to KWS Santiago, an attribute considered of high importance by growers.
LG Jigsaw has very similar straw characteristics to KWS Santiago, responding well to PGR treatments. The variety has a strong disease resistance profile better than most of the control varieties with strong ratings against rusts and 6 for Septoria tritici. LG Jigsaw also offers orange wheat blossom midge resistance as well as eyespot based on Pch1 from Revelation.
