Profile

Dazzler is one of DSV’s flagship triple-layer varieties, combining top yields with three important traits from DSV, Dazzler was one of the few varieties to join the Recommened List this year.

Status: AHDB Recommended List 2021/22

DAZZLER is a new triple layered variety from DSV that has the highest Gross Output and Oil Content data for the East / West Regions on the latest Recommended List.

The three outstanding traits of DAZZLER are its TuYV resistance, pod shatter resistance and the RLM7+ for multi‑gene resistance. It also has excellent Autumn Vigour.

Growing DAZZLER can be a step forward in the direction of more environmentally friendly crop production methods requiring less costly inputs. DAZZLER has high Gross Output (102%) and impressive Oil Content (46.2%). It has a good Resistance to Lodging (8) and a Stem Stiffness score of 9. It is a medium height variety standing at 153cm.

DAZZLER’s spring vigour is its major selling point. It is one the fastest growing varieties in our portfolio. As temperatures begin to rise, DAZZLER is quick off the block ahead of its competitors.

Triple Layer Protection comprises

Layer 1 – RLM7+ Disease Resistance
Multi-gene resistance to phoma stem canker and light leaf spot – the most common diseases of oilseed rape in the UK.

Layer 2 – Turnip Yellow Virus Resistance
Resistance to the growing threat of TuYV now endemic across the UK and potentially reducing oil content and yields by up to 20%.

Layer 3 – Pod Shatter Resistance
Minimises seed shed and loss in later stages of growth and at harvesting making it particularly useful when weather conditions are poor or in late seasons.
Furthermore, DSV triple-layered varieties are built on our long established genetic foundation of exceptional early vigour to drive establishment and allow crops to grow through disease and pest threat, a deep taproot to lay the foundation for high yields and optimum plant architecture to capture as much light as possible.
