  • White flowers
  • Seed yellow cotyledon, seed size range 240-280g/1000 seeds
Description

Visually Yellowstone is a strong plant with thicker stems, larger tendrils and
more tillers than Alezan. Pod length is longer than Alezan with 2-3 more grains
in each pod.

Yellowstone has consistently out-yielded Alezan in replicated plot trials in Canterbury. In its first seed multiplication area in Leeston in 2014/15 Yellowstone yielded 10.1 mt/ha from an irrigated 0.9 ha multiplication area.

 

The point of difference between Alezan and Yellowstone is consistently higher
grain yield, a larger grain size and improved tolerance to powdery mildew
