Variety information



Top level of nematode control
Name addition
Nematode resistant Oil radish
  • Best results in resistance tests against Beet Cyst Nematodes - more than 90 % reduction in official tests
  • COLONEL is highly effective and reduces the nematode population under the damage threshold - even a minor presence of nematodes can be reduced effectively
  • Dense foliage for effective weed suppression due to a strong and healthy youth development
  • The characteristic change from the vegetative to the generative development increases the frost susceptability and leads to an even mulch layer
  • Perfectly suitable for sugar-beet/potato crop rotations due to ist inhibiting effect on the Tobacco Rattle Virus (cause of  Corky Ring Spot)
  • COLONEL transforms available nutrients into a rich mass of organic matter which is favorable for a stabilized humus balance
  • Excellent suitability for agricultural blends
Included in blends: SortenGreening® COLONEL mit Lein
