Variety Facts

Dr Jason Able released the new Durum Variety at the Hart Field Day today 16th September 2014.

DBA-Aurora

When compared to other current commercial grown varieties including Hyperno, Saintly, Tjilkuri, Yawa and WID802 – Aurora stacks up by: Maintaining a high relative yield;  Having a superior disease resistance package;  Has an acceptable protein average;  Delivering improved grain size;  Importantly, having reduced screenings compared to some varieties;  Sowing early vigour and weed competitiveness.

DBA-Aurora will help alleviate some of the risk associated with growing durum and improve durum’s fit in the farming system rotation.

DBA-Aurora has been granted the Wheat Quality Australia classification ADR [Australian premium durum] for both the southern and northern regions of Australia.

DBA-Aurora is a great example of how the grower levies paid each year to the GRDC for research investment is directly coming back to them in the form of a very real, tangible return that will improve their on-farm profitability
