OWBM
OWBM will need to be monitored and treated accordingly if midge numbers
reach threshold, as GRAHAM does not have resistance to this pest, however
an application of HALLMARK Zeon should provide control.
AGRONOMICS
As well as excellent disease resistance, GRAHAM has an easy to manage
agronomic profile with good straw strength. It responds well to a PGR and is
rated as an 8 for lodging resistance (with PGR).
GRAHAM will ripen and mature earlier than all other winter wheat varieties
on the current AHDB Recommended List.
BREEDING INSIGHTS
Since we started growing
GRAHAM we’ve forgotten what
disease pressure is. We’ve not
had the panics in the season
that we used to have - with our
agronomist telling us we suddenly
had to spray. It’s been a lot easier
to grow.

maturity vs. JB Diego
Although rated as a 0 (days =/- JB Diego), our trials have shown GRAHAM
to be earlier than this in the field. In reality GRAHAM will mature 7-10 days
earlier than many crops.
GRAIN QUALITY
Although classed as a group 4 feed wheat, there are some end-users
that will accept GRAHAM in their grist. GRAHAM has a very good grain
quality profile that is significantly better than other hard feed varieties. It is
worth checking with your local purchaser to see if there are premiums
available for GRAHAM.
• Growing for straight feed = a standard nitrogen programme
•Growing for an end-use = check the protein specification and adapt
nitrogen applications
A good fungicide programme will further enhance the already robust specific
weight of GRAHAM. The high and stable Hagberg adds security to the
crop at harvest, this added to early maturity makes GRAHAM a reliable
choice for grain quality.
