HALLMARK XT Lentil
High yielding herbicide-tolerant lentil
PBA Hallmark XT builds on the success of the other herbicide-tolerant red lentils, PBA Herald XT and PBA Hurricane XT. It incorporates the same improved tolerance to some Group B herbicides, but with higher grain yields than PBA Hurricane XT and improved agronomic characteristics. PBA Hallmark XTA has greater early vigour, similar ratings to ascochyta blight and improved ratings to BGM when compared to PBA Hurricane XT. These features, combined with its herbicide tolerance, will make PBA Hallmark XT a preferred variety in many cropping regions.
PBA Hallmark XT is a medium red lentil so this variety can provide an alternative market class option to the popular small red lentil PBA Hurricane XT.
