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.
