DOUBLET

This variety has been specially bred to reduce nematodes, it has a unique combination of the highest resistance to beet-cyst nematodes and Root-knot nematode resistance. Doublet will produce a long tap root up to 2 meters deep, which will improve the soil structure and is frost resistant up to minus 6°C. Doublet is very leafy at the early stages of growth and is easily incorporated for maximum nematode control and is club root resistant. Doublet flowers late and will not set seed when sown in late summer or early autumn.

Doublet is resistent to:

  • Heterodera schachtii (BCN) Nematode Resistant Level 1  
  • Heterodera betea (BCN)                    
  • Meloidogyne chitwoodi and M. fallax (RKN)
  • Meloidogyne javanica (RKN)
  • Para trichodorus allius (stubby root nematode)

Doublet is non-host to:

  • Globodera rostochiensis and G. Pallida (Potato cyst nematode PCN)
  • Heterodera avenae (cereal cyst nematode)
  • Heterodera goettingiana (pea cyst nematode)
  • Meloidogyne naasi (cereal root knot nematode RKN)
  • Ditylenchus dipsaci (bulb nematode)
  • Ditylenchus destructor (potato tuber nematode)
  • Pratylenchus scripnerie (Scribner's lesion nematode)
  • Tobacco rattle virus (TRV)

TERRANOVA

This variety has been specially bred to reduce a broad range of nematodes. Terranova is frost resistant up to minus 8° C. Terranova is very leafy at the early stages of growth and is easily incorporated for maximum nematode control and is club root resistant. It has unique resistance to (sub-) tropical root-knot nematodes M. incognita and M. javanica. Terranova flowers very late.

Terranova is resistant to:

  • Heterodera schachtii (BCN)  Nematode Resistant Level 1
  • Heterodera betea (BCN)                    
  • Meloidogyne chitwoodi and M. fallax (RKN)
  • Meloidogyne incognita and javanica (RKN)
  • Para trichodorus allius (stubby root nematode)

Terranova is non-host to:

  • Globodera rostochiensis and G. Pallida (potato cyst nematode PCN)
  • Heterodera avenae (cereal cyst nematode)
  • Heterodera goettingiana (pea cyst nematode)
  • Meloidogyne naasi (cereal root knot nematode RKN)
  • Ditylenchus dipsaci (bulb nematode)
  • Ditylenchus destructor potato tuber nematode)
  • Tobacco rattle virus (TRV)

ANACONDA      

The variety Anaconda is both endowed with double resistance (BCN 2 and RKN M. chitwoodi and M. fallax) and high early vigour. It flowers late, with white flowers. Due its high early vigour, it has also a large re-growth potential. When sown as a main crop to suppress nematodes, it can be cut and left to re-grow, increasing the nematode suppression.

FINAL

This variety has the highest level of beet-cyst nematode resistance. Additionally it is very frost susceptible, a trait appreciated by farmers that leave their cover crop over winter; no additional pass is needed to destroy the crop.

ADIOS

The variety Adios is very resistant to Beet-cyst nematode (Level 1). Although it is a slow starter, it will flower late and not set seed when sown in stubble. Say Adios to your beet cyst nematodes!

NEMAFLEX

This is a very short variety with BCN 2 resistance. It flowers later than any other variety. Due to its short stature, it is very easy to incorporate. It has white with some purple coloured flowers.

BARACUDA

This is a new variety that combines a high early vigour with very late flowering and Beet-cyst nematode resistance (Level 2). It covers the soil very quickly, making it an ideal choice as cover crop.

BOKITO

The variety Bokito produces a large amount of biomass. When increase of organic matter is your goal, Bokito is the answer. On top of that it is resistant to beet-cyst nematodes. It has a very good ability to re-grow after cutting.
