WHEAT GUIDE 2023
Varieties that produce consistent milling and baking performance. Group 1 varieties are not interchangeable; some are better suited to specific uses than others. It is therefore important to understand end-use requirements.
KWS Zyatt, Skyfall, Crusoe and RGT Illustrious
Spring wheat: KWS Ladum, Mulika and Nissaba
This group comprises varieties that exhibit bread-making potential but are not suited to all grists. Some are consistent, but not as good as those in Group 1; some perform inconsistently while others are suited to specialist flours.
KWS Extase, KWS Palladium, KWS Siskin and Mayflower
Spring Wheat: KWS Cochise, KWS Giraffe, KWS Chilhum
Soft varieties for biscuit, cake and other flours.
KWS Guium, LG Prince, KWS Brium, Merit, KWS Firefly, RGT Rashid, LG Illuminate, LG Astronomer,
Elicit, KWS Barrel
These varieties are grown mainly as feed wheats. However, some (such as the examples listed below), may be used by millers in certain ‘general purpose’ grists if they achieve the contractual standards, but are unlikely to attract a premium.
Soft Wheats: LG Skyscraper, RGT Bairstow, RGT Stokes, RGT Saki, Elation, KWS Jackal, Swallow,
Hard Wheats: Champion, SY Insitor, KWS Dawsum, Gleam, Graham, KWS Cranium, LG Typhoon,
RGT Wolverine, Costello, Theodore, KWS Kerrin, RGT Gravity
Spring Wheats: KWS Fixum, WPB Escape, Hexham, KWS Talisker
