Pharrell is a new medium-late double purpose variety that is already registered in France. In the french registration the variety showed a good grain and silage yield, compared with a good agronomy. That is why we decided to put the variety also in the German EU-trial system. The variety is especially usefull in more continental areas in south of Germany and also in easter countries. It reacts good in stress-situations and has a balanced feed value (DINAG / STARCH).
