Trial Results:

In a trial established in Keith South Australia in 2003, the performance of 28 varieties and elite lines were compared in an irrigated replicated field trial. The highest yielding varieties over three cuts in this trial in 2003-04 included SuperSonic. Icon was 10% higher in yield than other comparable varieties.

in 2008 both SuperSonic and Icon were placed in two trial sites in Canterbury. One irrigated site at Alysbury and a dry land site in Greendale. These trials are run by an independent company and will be conducted to the highest industry standards.
