The varietal parameters may differ from those indicated here when the testing circumstances differ from quondam

Recommended sowing rate: 6-8 kg/ha.

For late sowing period or if there is a poor dispersion or high proportion of organic material/straw after harvest, the seed rate should be increased up to 18 kg/ha.
