Agronomic Features

Chicago is a crisping variety with excellent long term sugar

stability and low levels of acrylamide. Its uniform and shallow eyes result in high factory out turns. Chicago has a declining sucrose profile throughout storage and can be processed nine months after harvest.

Chicago has higher yields and improved dry matter relative

to controls producing 10-15% more dry matter per Ha.

Chicago has good heat and drought tolerance. Chicago has

excellent pest and disease results including partial resistance

to G. Pallida, and very good resistance to blight, common

scab, powdery scab and dry rot.
