New high protein APH wheat variety released

Pacific Feeds has released a new high protein APH wheat variety at a field day at the Tulloona National Variety Trials (NVT) site in north west NSW.  Marketed by Pacific Feeds, "Hellfire" is currently being bred up and will be available for winter 2020 plantings. 

Initial trials have shown that protein levels are similar to that of Spitfire, with significantly improved yields.    The grain will mature early to mid season.  Hellfire has a medium plant height, good standability and a solid disease package suitable for all main season growing areas in Queensland and NSW.


As reported in GrainCentral 6/9/19 - “LRPB Hellfire shows excellent early vigour, solid resistance to stem and stripe rusts, good root lesion nematode (RLN) tolerance, and good yield performance under the added stress of crown rot.

“The large grain, high protein and low screenings make LRPB Hellfire a standout grain package.”
