The Complete Package
Brasetto – hybrid rye is an absolute favourite for anyone who has grown it. Millers and distillers love it for its high functional profile and consistent milling characteristics. It will be one foot shorter than conventional rye and has great standability. Growers have reported Brasetto yields 1.3 to 2 times more than their conventional rye. Brasetto gets its yield from the tremendous fall tillering ability. This is the best wheat in Ontario that has great winter survival with very fast and vigorous spring growth. It will head out before winter wheat but harvests later than winter wheat.
Brasetto appears to have a great fit right across the province, but excels on soils where wheat struggles i.e. naturally drained, lighter, sandy soils. Growers producing Brasetto rye are required to sign a single use seed contract prior to picking up the seed.
