Growing Areas

JDC 78 has a great fit in the Area 1 geography (south of London) on multiple soil types. Keep it on higher fertility soils with good drainage. Keep it off droughty soils such as sand and gravel. If planting early, watch high seeding rates because this variety can produce lots of tillers and develop lots of top growth. Too many seeds in early planting can lead to lodging. The variety has a small seed size.
