|Type: 6-Row Feed (BYDV)||Pedigree: Amistar x KWS Kosmos|
- A 6-row feed barley with tolerance to BYDV that looks very interesting. Consistent high yields (107% treated, 82% untreated) in Agrii’s trials in 2021 and an average specific weight similar to that of KWS Orwell. Suitable for the West, North and other areas where BYDV is a significant problem.
- Can be grown on any soil type but it performs better on heavier soils. Tall (95 cm treated, 102 cm untreated), moderately stiff straw (7) and medium-late maturity.
- Good resistance to net blotch (7) and Rhynchosporium (7) but weak against mildew (4) and brown rust (3). Resistant to Barley Yellow Mosaic Virus.
