Variety information



The easiliy freezing-off Oil radish
Name addition
Nematode resistant Oil radish
  • COMPASS freezes off easier and faster than conventional oil radish varieties
  • High resistance against Beet Cyst Nematodes (Heterodera schachtii) in the upper range of resistance level 2+
  • Long vegetative growth with low tendency to flower
  • Deep and intense root penetration of soil ensures a good soil structure
  • No additional costs for incorporation, especially suitable for mulch drilling and direct sowing methods
  • Early sowing of sugar beets and maize in spring is possible because of quick soil warming caused by the thin mulch layer
Included in blends: COMPASS mit Lein, viterra® MULCH, viterra® RÜBE, viterra® TRIO
