Variety Positioning

  • Added to the AHDB Recommended List with a specific Western recommendation. In-test as a malting variety but more likely to be grown as a feed barley this year.
  • Consistent across soil types and relatively straightforward to manage. It has given consistent yields over the past three years (103% treated, 96% untreated in AHDB trials) with a decent specific weight (67.2 kg/hl).
  • Relatively tall (76 cm), stiff straw (8 treated, 7 untreated), very good brackling resistance (8) and medium-early maturity. It produces intermediate to high straw yields.
  • High untreated yields reflect the good all-round disease resistance, with good mildew resistance (9), Rhynchosporium (6) but average on brown rust (5). Moderately susceptible to net blotch in Agrii’s trials.
