Growing V316OL


  • Medium autumn growth habit means V316OL CL is suitable for the early as well as the main drilling window.
  • Low Disturbance establishment systems may reduce germination of non-HOLL volunteersand improve quality.
  • Sow at a seed rate appropriate to achieve an even plant stand of 25-30 plants/m2 in spring.
  • A taller height means PGRs should be considered at stem extension especially when growing conditions are favourable and a large canopy exists to manage height.
