Status: AHDB Recommended List 2019/20
Temptation joined the Recommended List this December. It has been recommended for the whole of the UK. It is the first Turnip Yellow resistant variety to be sold by DSV in the UK.
Turnip Yellow Virus (TuYV) has been a well-known threat to oilseed rape for over 30 years throughout Europe. This disease can cause a considerable loss of yield. Spread by the peach potato aphid (Myzus persicae) indications are that losses can be as high as 30%. Due to this, DSV have been breeding varieties with resistance to TuYV for over 10 years. It has become more of a concern throughout Europe, including the UK, due to the reduction in availability and restrictions in the use of key plant protection products.
Temptation has been recommended for the whole of the UK with a strong gross output scores for the East and West and North region. It is a restored hybrid with a gross output comparable to listed varieties and is a considerable leap forward from first generation turnip yellow resistant varieties.
