Sowing date

Scout is best suited to drilling from early September until the end of January. It has all of the attributes for early drilling – slow primordial development, stiff straw, excellent disease resistance and high specific weight.


Scout is a little shy on tillering. We would suggest you increase your sowing rate by 25 seeds/m2 above your normal rate. Consult your agronomist.


Despite its very stiff straw, a routine application of PGR would be recommended with Scout at GS 31.


Premium potential for biscuit and export markets means that priority should be given to Scout at harvest. It should be stored separately to maximise the premium potential.
