Grainseed will be showing off a new oilseed rape variety called Es Alienor. Hailed as a ‘hi tech, low biomass’ variety, it is just one of four conventional varieties in current candidate HGCA Recommended national trials, and has been one of the all-round top performers.

According to independent variety consultant Richard Fenwick, Es Alienor “has an excellent set of plant characteristics, including very good resistance to light leaf spot and stem canker”.

Combined disease rating is unmatched by any other variety, conventional or hybrid, in HGCA trials. Gross output is similar to Castille.
