Big Root Yield - Big Top Yield
Initially developed for the AD market by Strube, Acker is now widely used as animal feed. It combines very high yield with relatively clean lifting roots. DM yield in trials has been 5-6 t/ha higher than Beretta, energy yield 12% higher. Acker has very large tops, potentially protecting the crown when harvesting late. Bolting resistance is excellent. Mildew and rust resistance are also very good. Acker is also Rhizomania tolerant.
