Agitator is an extremely tough variety that can tolerate both pre and post flowering stress. It has the desirable ability to adapt to changes in seasonal conditions, providing growers with consistent yields. It is dependable in good conditions but will outperform others when the going gets tough. Agitator is also appealing feed for cattle and can be utilised as a forage crop.

Agitator handles harsh and challenging growing conditions or double cropping situations extremely well. Be careful when spraying organophosphate in hot weather, as the insecticide can cause lea burn. Agitator is typically the first to flower - so be vigilant for midge. Be ready to harvest seven days after spraying out as Agitator dries down very quickly.

Available in bulk, 1 tonne bulk bags and 20kg bags.

Seed is supplied bare unless otherwise requested.
