CATHERINE HIGH YIELDING MILLING WHEAT
Catherine performs best when autumn sown, although has no vernalisation requirement so can be sown until the end of August. This cultivar has a very different growth habit, with large, erect leaves which provide better light interception that contributes to its high yield potential.

Catherine is a medium to tall cultivar that stands well. It produces grain of a good size and exhibits good resistance to pre-harvest sprouting.

Catherine has good resistance to rust.
