Pedigree: LPB 00LR000041/Sentinel 3R. Trojan (LPB08-1799) was bred by LongReach Plant Breeders, and has been extensively
evaluated by the LongReach Plant Breeders since 2007. The line was first entered into the National Variety Trials in 2012.
Trojan is a high yielding main season variety and has performed well in a range of seasons and environments across the western and southern areas of the Australian wheat belt. Trojan has a mid late maturity similar to Magenta and Calingiri, and typically flowers 6-10 days later than Mace. This makes Trojan well suited to the medium to higher rainfall areas. It is also suitable for seeding a week earlier than the main planting varieties such as Mace and Cobra allowing growers to target higher yields through a longer season. Trojan has medium Coleoptile length and medium plant height at maturity. Trojan has good Boron tolerance (MT) and carries the Bo1gene which is known to confer tolerance to Boron and Aluminium.
