Toby has one of the highest Septoria tritici scores (7.1) of all the NL2 varieties and controls, (just a 0.1 below DSV's other feed variety Theodore with a score of 7.2). In both years of National List trialling, it has had the top score for brown rust with a nine in both years; this is because of its stacked brown rust genes for durable resistance. It has also scored the highest score for yellow rust, making it have the highest combination for rust resistance.

Along with its excellent diseases package it also has the Sm1 for orange wheat blossom midge resistance.

Standing at 84cm Toby has good resistance to lodging in both treated and untreated plots, with no lodging seen in breeders' plots throughout its time in trialling.
