Disease resistance

Florentine shows excellent resistance to all diseases, particularly to

mildew and the economically important disease Rhynchosporium,

where it has far better resistance than all market leading varieties.

Florentine is also virus resistant, unlike Saffron. Florentine's superb all

round disease and virus resistance provides the grower with an

opportunity to reduce costs on farm.
