SF Ovalo is an awnless, long growing season winter wheat with potential for high yields in the high rainfall zone. It has been developed in France and into Northern Spain where its low P/L ratio brings specific qualities required by the European baking industry.
SF Ovalo is a very prolific tillering variety this leads to a high number of ears per m2 in the field and a high yield for the grower. It is particularly resistant to Septoria and Fusarium. It is recommended for sowing in southern high rainfall zone or under irrigation where its high yields can enable greater per hectare returns than higher quality white wheats.
