Toggle between list and paragraph view.
- [00:00:00.840]This is LCS Valiant.
- [00:00:02.760]It was developed by the university of Nebraska
- [00:00:04.980]and it's marketed by Limagrain Cereal Seeds.
- [00:00:08.610]Reason for that is it's got a niche in Western Kansas
- [00:00:12.240]where we don't particularly market well,
- [00:00:14.000]so we wanted to have a partner,
- [00:00:15.540]and they really liked this line
- [00:00:17.250]and we like working with them.
- [00:00:18.950]So that's why it's being marketed that way.
- [00:00:21.720]This line has a couple of really nice things to it.
- [00:00:24.200]Excellent stem rust resistance,
- [00:00:26.280]pretty good leaf rust resistance,
- [00:00:28.030]pretty good Hessian fly resistance,
- [00:00:30.320]very resistant to soil-borne mosaic virus.
- [00:00:33.190]It is not as good as Overland or Everest or Zenda
- [00:00:36.420]for Fusarium head blight, but it's right below them.
- [00:00:39.360]This is a very good line if you're worried
- [00:00:42.930]about Fusarium head blight or scab.
- [00:00:45.700]It's earlier than almost any of the
- [00:00:47.180]Nebraska lines we've released recently,
- [00:00:49.700]it has absolutely superb end-use quality,
- [00:00:53.270]beautiful test weight, pretty good protein,
- [00:00:55.690]pretty good straw strength, pretty good winter hardiness.
- [00:00:58.490]If there's one thing you have to watch with LCS Valiant,
- [00:01:01.740]it is susceptible to stripe rust.
- [00:01:04.460]And this is one where if you're going
- [00:01:06.290]to use a fungicide, it would use it.
- [00:01:08.290]If you hear that stripe rust is coming,
- [00:01:10.380]this may be one of the earlier ones to spray.
- [00:01:13.630]It's a very good line otherwise,
- [00:01:15.420]and a very good line by its agronomic performance.
- [00:01:18.473](upbeat music)
