Progress in plant varieties is usually gradual and evolutionary. It is not very common for a variety to appear on the market that reevaluates the current perception of the synonym of the best variety. In 2018, something very rare happened - EUFORIA, a new Polish variety of winter wheat, in which positive utility features are accumulated with an unprecedented frequency.
First and foremost, EUFORIA produces excellent yields. Moreover, EUFORIA yields high in years with different weather patterns. She was the best in the COBORU experience in 2016, which was characterized by dreams. It was sensational in 2017, which, thanks to the large amount of rainfall and milder winter, was conducive to record yields. She was also excellent in the extremely dry 2018.
This year's EUFORIA plantations also look very competitive compared to other varieties. Such flexible behavior of the variety in different weather years is the result of the appropriate selection of its mother components and the long-term selection process carried out in various weather conditions.
As a variety dedicated to cultivation in the region of Central, Eastern and Northern Europe, EUFORIA must meet high winter hardiness requirements. After the harsh winter of 2016, COBORU rated the winter hardiness of EUFORIA at 6o, which immediately placed it at the top of the table of winter hardiness varieties.
When considering the safety of wheat cultivation more broadly, the resistance to fungal diseases cannot be forgotten. EUFORIA is very good at dealing with the most important diseases in this species. In particular, resistance to stem root diseases should be important for all those who decide to grow wheat in defective crop rotation (with the dominance of cereals).
High resistance to lodging guarantees an efficient harvest, and thanks to its high tolerance to low soil pH, EUFORIA reacts with a lower yield loss than varieties sensitive to too acidic soil reaction.
The quality of the crop is as important as the yield. High resistance to the sprouting of grain in the spike makes it possible to obtain good quality parameters even during wet harvesting. The very characteristics of EUFORIA quality characteristics indicate that we are dealing with wheat, which is closer to the highest quality class E (elite) than class A.
The above arguments show that when planning the cultivation of winter wheat, the choice of the EUFORIA variety is an excellent basis for obtaining high yields of very good quality, while reducing the risk associated with freezing, increased disease pressure and other unfavorable factors (lodging, grain sprouting, etc.). According to information received from seed companies from all over Poland, the interest in buying seeds of this variety is very high and everything indicates that Euforia will be one of the most frequently purchased varieties in the country this year.
