2S varieties

developed by Biogranum

Two-season varieties (2S), which combine both winter and spring genetics, carefully balanced inside of a single variety.

2S cereals bring these advantages:

  • can be planted from September to April next year
  • re-sowing is possible in cases of damage or failure of initial crop for any reason
  • rapid germination, emergence and initial growth
  • balance of winter and spring genes causes extraordinary adaptability and tolerance to drought and heat stress during both vegetative and grain filling periods
  • stable grain yield over a range of different environments and years
  • can successfully match the high-yielders of real winter or real spring varieties
  • unprecedented technological quality of 2S wheats
    (protein content has been measured up to 18 %, wet gluten up to 35 %, Falling number (HFN) and W up to 400)

Please note:
planting densities of the varieties on the photographs are 25% lower than optimal,
since they are taken in the breeder seed production field.
