Wizard is a consistent variety producing large, attractive seed with a very good protein content. It is suited for use in the animal feed market and has excellent premium export potential for North Africa and the Middle East where it is used for splitting. Wizard has relatively short straw, is medium branching, stands well and has early maturity, with the added benefit of good Ascochyta resistance.
Wizard yields well on a wide variety of soil types in all locations and is set to remain a popular and widely grown variety.
