A seedling stand of Siriver Mk II shows its outstanding performance.

Derived from the proven variety Siriver, Siriver Mk II has been bred and selected for a number of superior traits, including persistence, high vigour and general resistance to common field diseases. It is a winter active variety of dormancy class 9 with a field performance that has reflected its selection parameters in having superior yield and persistence to that of similar varieties, particularly in dryland trials. Its high productivity, seedling and winter vigour make it very well suited to short term leys in cereal zones, while its persistence also enables it to continue to perform for longer term leys if required.
