|Type: 6-Row Feed||Hybrid Barley|
- The most widely grown hybrid barley variety on the Recommended List. It has performed consistently well in Agrii trials over the past 3 years with high treated (107%) and average untreated (75%) yields and a good specific weight (66.3 kg/hl).
- Suitable for all regions of the UK and soil types. Drill from 20th September through to the end of October. Use low seed rates to establish 180 plants/m2 to maximise specific weight and, as with all hybrids, bring nitrogen use forward (30% at GS25, 50% at GS30/31, 20% at GS32/37) to boost early vigour and increase tillering, rooting and grain numbers. A semi erect-type with high tillering capacity, very high vigour and very competitive against grassweeds. Medium-late maturity.
- Relatively tall (114 cm) with a moderate risk of lodging even when treated with a full PGR programme. Good all-round disease resistance against Mildew, Brown Rust and Net Blotch in Agrii trials and Rhychosporium in official trials.
- Resistant to Barley Yellow Mosaic Virus.
