  5. 5. Scepter vs Mace – the fit ? • 2015 first year in NVT in SA…. • No detected physical quality issues, BP? • Improved disease resistance eg Yr, stb but some unrated? • Limited NVT yield data (2015 only) 7% av. improvement in  SA mallee (much lower elsewhere) • Greater advantage in low yielding (<3tn/ha)environments?  MET data
  6. 6. Cutlass vs Yitpi, Trojan • 2015 first year in NVT in SA…. • No detected physical quality issues, sprouting? • Improved disease resistance eg Sr, Lr, YLS over Yitpi, Trojan better for  Yr and Bp, but some unrated diseases? Roseworthy 2014‐ AGT data • Flowering/heading more similar  to Yitpi than Trojan • Limited yield data, in mallee Yitpi+5%, Trojan‐6% • Suit mid April planting before  Trojan and Mace ?  • Flowering/heading more similar  to Yitpi than Trojan • Limited yield data, in mallee Yitpi+5%, Trojan‐6%

  8. 8. SpartacusCL vs ScopeCL – the fit ? • Spartacus 2 years in NVT…. • SpartacusCL agronomcally like Latrobe/Hindmarsh +IMI tolerance • SpartacusCL‐ better quality (Ret, Scr. Pending malt???) than Scope • Improved disease resistance eg Lr, SFNB, CCN • Greatly improved yield (10%?) • Improved straw strength (like Hindmarsh) and head holding • Low itch ISSUES ? • Short coleoptile ? • Poor early vigour  • Poor weed competitiveness  • Short strawed • Still a place for ScopeCL on lighter soils and weedy situations
  9. 9. Hindmarsh types                       Maritime Varieties vary in tolerance and ability to suppress weeds
