Loxton is DSV's newest Group 1, top class milling wheat. It has performed extremely well in National List trials and has been chosen by Warburtons as a strong contender to replace older varieties in their portfolio of proven bread makers. Loxton has an impressive protein content and produces a bright, white soft crumb with a fine texture.
The only bread maker alongside Skyfall to have Orange Blossom Midge Resistance. Loxton also offers a very robust disease package compared to those bread makers already on offer, with an impressive 9 for Yellow rust and 7 for Septoria tritici. Loxton’s high untreated yield also adds to its sustainability package. It is a medium height variety, early maturity with the added bonus of good lodging scores for growers when ease of combining comes into consideration.
Loxton has proven to yield well across all regions and has a wide sowing window, its powerful early growth habit giving growers the ultimate flexibility. A robust tried and tested variety which has performed through a range of soils, seasons and climate conditions.
