VARIETY DESCRIPTION
GLEAM was added to the AHDB Recommended List in 2018. It is a very
high yielding, adaptable hard feed winter wheat variety.
High yielding in all rotational positions, regions and soil types.
Wide drilling window, suitable from early September through to mid February.
Excellent overall disease resistance and OWBM resistance.
WHERE TO GROW GLEAM
Good as a first and second wheat,
its prostrate growth habit means its
good as an early drilling variety, but
early maturity means it also suits
drilling up to mid February.

HOW TO GET THE MOST FROM YOUR WINTER FEED WHEAT
GROWTH HABIT
• Slow growth habit throughout winter and can often look ‘backward’
• Later to reach stem extension
• Rapidly catches up from GS30 onwards
• Earlier maturity (0)
GLEAM generates large numbers of tillers early on and maintains them
through the growing season to flowering. High tillering varieties need
sufficient nitrogen to support their growth and maintain tiller survival, but
care needs to be taken to maximise yield without risking lodging.
Luckily GLEAM is a short, stiff-strawed variety that has good lodging
resistance.

DID YOU KNOW?
Due to its slow growth habit,
excellent disease resistance and
stiff straw, GLEAM can be drilled
from 1st September onwards. Due
to its high tillering ability and early
maturity it is also highly suited to
later drilling.
GLEAM is highly adaptable. It has
one of the safest late sowing dates
and good late drilling performance.
GLEAM has shown good yield
consistency over a number of very
different seasons.
