Zulu is a biscuit wheat variety, added to the AHDB RL in 2014. Within the early generation testing at Limagrain and an additional three years of testing whilst in NL/RL trials, the variety has consistently met the requirements of this Group 3 sector.
Zulu offers good agronomic attributes and will fulfil several market outlets – similar to the ‘benchmark’ variety Claire, in many ways. Zulu is a high yielding soft biscuit winter wheat, that was added to the AHDB RL for 2014.
Limagrain have a strong association with the soft Group 3 market and Zulu is a welcome addition to this portfolio offering growers a very sound variety with good agronomic traits, and importantly, several end use market opportunities. Zulu has shown very good yield consistency over seasons, regions, rotational position and soil types proving good resilience in very erratic climatic conditions.
