Profile

Lumen is a strong performing variety on the new Descriptive List. It features a high gross output 101% ensuring maximum return for growers. Lumen was grown on UK farms since 2017. It took significant market share in 2020 producing some impressive yields, with many who were new to growing spring oilseed rape.

Lumen has a very high seed yield of 101% combined with a high oil content of 44.2% but by far its strongest asset is its early vigour in the spring, quickly establishing a strong rooting system and early leaf set helping to ensure maximum plant survival against potential flea beetle attack.

  • Lumen is the market leading variety for spring oilseed rape
  • Previous list topping variety Lumen has held onto its impressive gross output
  • One of the earliest maturing varieties available
  • Reliable on farm performance for the last two years
