Profile

Lagonda is a variety from the DLE porfolio, it will be the third year that Lagonda has been grown on UK farms. Lagonda marks a large step forward in yield and vigour. Lagonda has a high oil content (44.0%) to accompany this high yield (111%) ensuring growers maximise returns at harvest. At 135cm it sits in the middle of the pack when it comes to plant height and has a strong score for standing ability (7). Lagonda is early to flower and has a medium maturity. Trials this year have demonstrated that Lagonda has excellent spring vigour quickly growing away from any possible pest attack. Drilling spring oilseed rape at the end of March/early April means less pressure is put on both man and machine. Spring oilseed rape generally only requires around 150 days to grow; therefore Phoma isn’t a problem due to its short vegetative stage and specific temperature requirements. The occurrence of fungal diseases are much less than in winter rape, so disease control is rarely necessary. However, Lagonda demonstrates strong disease protection.

  • The highest yielding variety on the Descriptive List (112%)
  • Very high gross output (6% higher the markert leader - Lumen)
  • Impressive spring vigour ensuring fast establishment
