SHABRAS
JB Diego
SHABRAS is suited to light soils and in a second cereal position.
Key considerations:
•Take-all in a second wheat situation
•Drought and nutrient deficiencies on light land
For both these situations increased rooting mass can be a huge benefit to
mitigate these issues. Early nitrogen and seed dressing choice can make a
big difference in protecting root growth.
SHABRAS is a strong variety in these situations, and the seed treatment
VIBRANCE Duo can also bring big advantages by enhancing rooting. Find
out more in the Rooting and Establishment section.
MATURITY AND GRAIN QUALITY
SHABRAS has a ripening score
of 0 (+/- JB Diego) on the AHDB
Recommended List. Only six other
varieties on the Recommended List
2020/21 mature more quickly.
•Early maturity will give added
security in wet harvests
•Harvest work load can be spread
by choosing a range of maturities
on farm
SHABRAS has secure grain quality
characteristics.
•A solid Hagberg Falling Number
will be beneficial for sprouting
resistance
SHABRAS does not have OWBM
resistance, so will need to be
monitored and treated accordingly
if midge numbers reach threshold.
An application of HALLMARK Zeon
should provide control.
AGRONOMICS
SHABRAS will respond well to a
PGR, especially on a high potential
site. An application of MODDUS
will help maintain the canopy and
protect yield.
BREEDING INSIGHTS
A very high yielding variety with
full UK recommendation. SHABRAS
has outstanding second wheat
yields plus strong performances
on heavy and light soils.
Its very early maturity coupled
with its robust Hagberg Falling
Number means it is a safe bet
for harvest.
