250,000 hectares of growers can’t be wrong! Campus is the most widely sown oilseed rape in the UK.
Its popularity owes much to its exceptional autumn and strong spring vigour characteristics, which have proved consistent on-farm performance.
Campus has good disease scores with a 6 for light leaf spot and stem canker, so is suitable for all regions, giving a good level of resistance to both major diseases.
Additionally, it performs well in trials where verticillium stem stripe has been found. It’s faster than the flea beetle and always delivers more than it says on the tin.
Bred by Saaten Union widely grown across Northern Europe, Anapolis was selected by the ‘Alliance Group of merchants’ (Wynnstay, Woodheads, Pearce Seeds, Hutchinsons and Daltons) for the UK market as a result of its performance in their commercial agronomy trials.
Having established a reputation for excellent grain quality and good disease resistance, particularly to fusarium in National List Trials, Anapolis delivered storming yields when grown using commercial agronomy programmes in the Alliance Group’s trials. Anapolis would appear to be particularly suited to following maize, making it a useful option following energy crops in the east and forage crops in the southwest.
