Type: 6-Row Feed Hybrid Barley

Variety Positioning

  • Agrii’s preferred hybrid barley variety. While not as big and bulky as Bazooka, it offers a step up in yield performance for those looking to change out of conventional barley. Consistently high yields over the past 3 years (106%) with high untreated yields (80%) and good specific weight (65.7 kg/hl).
  • It performs consistently well across all regions and soil types and it is the highest yielding variety on heavy land (109%) in official trials. High-tillering capacity with a semi-prostrate growth habit, it is very competitive against Blackgrass. Drill from 20th September through to the end of October and, like the other hybrids, it is best used to maintain already low weed populations. It is the shortest and stiffest of any of the hybrids and has medium-early maturity.
  • Good all-round disease resistance against Mildew, Brown Rust and Net Blotch in Agrii trials with an official rating of 6 for Rhynchosporium.
  • Resistant to Barley Yellow Mosaic Virus.
