Status: AHDB Candidate List 2018/19
Temptation has been re-drilled as a candidate to hopefully be recommended in December 2018. It is the first Turnip Yellow resistant variety to be sold by DSV in the UK. It is a restored hybrid with a gross output comparable to listed varieties and a considerable leap forward from first generation turnip yellow resistant varieties. Temptation demonstrates a high and consistent yield and an impressive oil content of 45.9%. Temptations best gross output came from Broughton in Hampshire (110%).
Its launch coincides with new reports which suggests the UK is entering into a potentially serious situation with the disease causing significant effects on both yields and oil content. Spread by the peach potato aphid (Myzus persicae) indications are losses can be as high as 30%.
