Beckom was selected from a cross involving Annuello, Stylet and Young. The aim of the cross was to combine aluminium and boron tolerance with CCN resistance and root lesion nematode (RLN) (P. thornei) tolerance, resulting in a broadly adapted variety.
- Very high and stable grain yield
- Mid-season maturity
- Acid and boron soil tolerant
- AH quality classification
- Good resistance to stem and stripe rust
- Short conservative plant type
- CCN resistance
