Despite failing to gain IBD approval, LG Opera has shown consistently high yield potential over seasons and regions, in both treated and untreated trials.
LG Opera is a moderately short strawed variety with good brackling resistance. It has an earlier ripening score – an important characteristic for consideration in the North. It has a good disease resistance profile, similar to Odyssey with a rating of 6 for the disease, Ramularia. The variety has good grain quality attributes combined with a high hot water extract on the AHDB RL 2017/18.
