OVERVIEW

AGRONOMICS

Sowing date

Costello can be drilled from mid September to end of January depending on soil conditions, site etc.

Please consult your agronomist.

Costello is a hard Group 4 feed wheat combining all the features now desired on farm – exceptional grain quality in all conditions, excellent disease resistance, high yields and short, stiff straw.

The superb grain quality and excellent disease resistance of Costello, across a range of seasons and conditions, provide a wider range of market opportunities and offer the grower security, both in crop management and at harvest.

PERFORMANCE

Costello produces high treated yields in all locations, rotations and on all soil types. Like the farm favourite JB Diego, Costello performs well in all weather conditions, an important asset on UK farms in recent years.

Costello has outstanding grain quality, with once again the highest specific weight on the AHDB RL 2018/19 and a HFN higher than any Group 4 and most milling wheats. It also has a high protein content.

Superb, reliable grain quality provides growers with security at harvest and widens market opportunities.

Disease resistance

 

Costello has excellent all-round disease resistance, particularly to yellow rust, Septoria tritici and Fusarium. Costello reduces the risk for growers in high disease seasons and could help to manage costs, which is particularly important in the second wheat situation.
