Revelation is an almost ‘perfect’ variety agronomically. It has approval for distilling and export and performs well as an early drilled wheat and second wheat.
Revelation has a high untreated yield; a consequence of having the best disease resistance profile of all varieties on the 2019/20 AHDB RL. The seasons of 2012, 2014 and 2016 stressed the importance of genetic disease resistance for maintaining farm performance. It is essential that we use both plant resistance and fungicide chemistry as a synergy to ensure the longevity of both variety and chemistry efficiency for the future.
Revelation is a moderately tall strawed variety with very good resistance to lodging, with an 8 rating in PGR treated trials on the AHDB RL 2019/20. This is an important attribute, especially for a variety that has the capabilities of being sown in the earlier drilling slot. Revelation is a later maturing variety.
Revelation’s grain quality is still comparable if not better to the newer varieties entering the market, offering growers several outlet opportunities with the variety showing good distilling performance and suitability for export, biofuel and animal feed markets.
It suits the early drilling and second wheat situation on-farm, giving growers the opportunity to spread workloads and agronomic inputs.
