In practice Rijk Zwaan’s range of Blueleaf® varieties show less susceptibility to diseases that are beyond their official HR and IR resistances

Darker and stronger

The Blueleaf® range of varieties have some traits in common which help improve the quality of the crop and are recognisable from a healthy dark colour in the crop. This colour comes from improved chlorophyll levels in the plant, meaning:

  • Better use of light for a longer, healthier, and more productive crop
  • A more balanced crop and more effective nutrient distribution
  • Lower susceptibility to disease infection and pests
  • Varieties are better adapted to Australia’s tough climate
