New to the 2019/20 AHDB Recommended List, LG Detroit is a very high yielding, hard group 2 wheat, that meets specification for UKP bread wheat for overseas markets. The variety has a good disease resistance package combined with stiff straw and excellent grain quality.
LG Detroit has shown high yield potential and consistency over three years of trials, and has shown itself to perform extremely well in the West.
The variety has very similar straw characteristics to Skyfall, responding well to PGR treatments. LG Detroit has a good disease resistance profile with a strong rating of 6 for Septoria tritici and excellent 7 for Fusarium. It is also the only Group 2 winter wheat variety with resistance to orange wheat blossom midge (OWBM); an important trait valued by growers, especially in quality wheat.
