Breeding

Bennett was bred from a complex cross targeting improved BYDV tolerance and YLS resistance in a milling class winter wheat.

Plant Type

Bennett is a tall awnless wheat ideally suited to high and medium rainfall zones, with an early planting opportunity.

In graze and grain operations optimal sowing time is from mid-March through to early May. Bennett provides excellent biomass production for grazing, hay and grain.

Bennett is a full winter wheat, with photoperiod sensitivity, and will generally flower 7-10 days later than EGA Wedgetail. This flowering window assists Bennett in reducing risk of damage through frost exposure.

Bennett provides strong YLS resistance.
