AAC Alida VB is a high yielding semi-dwarf CWRS with very good lodging and sprouting tolerance, plus it is moderately resistant to FHB.
AAC Alida VB is also tolerant to the orange wheat blossom midge.
AAC Alida VB is well-adapted to the wheat growing regions across the western Canadian Prairies. Certified seed of AAC Alida VB will be sold as a varietal blend made up of 90% AAC Alida and 10% AAC Brandon. Blending with the midge susceptible variety AAC Brandon provides a refuge area for nonvirulent midge to survive at low levels, thereby extending the useful life of the Sm1 midge tolerant
