Severus

Severus

Severus is an exciting new hybrid from KWS. Listed in 2013, its early vigour is impressive helping it to outperform other varieties in cool seasons like 2012. Severus flowers nearly as early as Kaspian, but grows on to produce 2-3 tonnes more silage per acre. Grain development is early, similar to Lapriora. Ripening is faster, but without the sudden leaf dry down of associated with Kaspian. It was outstanding in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Severus looks to be setting a new standard of yield, earliness and most importantly, reliability.
