Optimised for protein production
The very high protein content (20%) in the dry matter allows a total high protein yield per ha. In the French official trials the protein reached more than 3600 kg/ha.
Tolerance to nematodes and diseases
Concerto is very tolerant to nematodes (70% tolerant plants compared to 37% in the check variety) and with very good resistance to the frequent disease verticillium.
Significantly improved lodging tolerance
The French official trials, as well as Czech trials, have shown the excellent lodging tolerance of Concerto. This is very important to preserve the feeding quality, the total yield, the speed of the harvest process and avoid soil contamination.
Concerto is listed in Austria, the Czech Republic and Slovakia - the evidence of a good winter hardiness.
