Profile

Status: AHDB Recommended – West Region


THEODORE is a high yielding hard feed winter wheat with outstanding disease resistance. It has group leading Untreated Yield in trials (88% of treated controls), outperforming all of the feed varieties (Gleam 81% and SY Insitor 78%), making it a farmer-friendly variety to grow in the future with the ever-increasing reductions in available chemistry.

THEODORE has performed very well in the trials network; particularly in the West of the country, with a Treated Yield of 102% of controls which makes it one of the highest yielding varieties for that area. THEODORE has the highest Septoria tritici score (8.3) of all the recommended varieties and controls, (DSV’s other varieties also score highly for this disease resistance, making DSV a top choice for Septoria tritici resistance). It also has the highest score for Yellow Rust (9) and a strong Brown Rust score of 7. Overall, it has a robust and all-round package for disease resistance. Standing at 83cm, THEODORE has good resistance to lodging in both treated and untreated plots, with no lodging seen in breeders’ plots throughout its time in trialling.
