LG Skyscraper is the highest yielding winter wheat on the AHDB Recommended List 2019/20. The variety is a very attractive soft feed wheat and offers a combination of strong agronomic merits and grain quality attributes, giving growers maximum return on their investment.
LG Skyscraper has shown very high yield potential with a significant yield improvement over KWS Santiago – the consistently high yielding benchmark.
LG Skyscraper is taller strawed, similar to KWS Santiago, which responds well to PGR treatments, offering robustness in difficult seasons. The variety has a strong disease resistance profile, showing good resistance for both Yellow Rust and Septoria tritici.
LG Skyscraper also offers the additional benefit of OWBM resistance; an important trait increasingly valued by growers due to restrictions on insecticide products.
