New Raider Offering Flexibility And Performance For East Coast Wheat Growers


Pacific Seeds has released LRPB Raider, an exciting new wheat variety for the East Coast market.

Bred by LongReach Plant Breeders and marketed by Pacific Seeds, LRPB Raider is proving a popular choice for the season ahead.

Pacific Seeds Marketing Manager Andrew Short said LRPB Raider had been developed, tested and extensively trialled to solve a key challenge faced by growers on the East Coast of Australia – sowing window flexibility without compromised yield performance.

“LRPB Raider is an APH wheat variety developed specifically as slow-spring option suitable for EarlyMid season planting,” said Mr. Short.

“As a high yielding variety, Raider also provides growers stable yield performance across a wider sowing window plus it offers a secure disease and grain package for all environments.”

“Raider provides growers with greater flexibility without compromising on yield performance.”

LRPB Raider has a shorter plant height with the ability to quicken in cooler environments and seasons, while retaining LRPB Lancer’s high tillering growth style and LRPB Reliant’s ability to finish the season off fast.
