|Type: 2-Row Feed (BYDV)||Pedigree: KWS Glacier x (54625 KH2 x KWS Cassia)|
- The UK’s first 2-row winter barley with tolerance to BYDV. Not on the UK Recommended List but consistent high yields (96% treated, 83% untreated) in Agrii’s trials over the past three years.
- It has a slightly better specific weight than KWS Orwell and relatively low screening losses. Suitable for the West and other areas where BYDV is a significant problem. Tall (91 cm treated, 95 cm untreated), moderately stiff straw and early maturity.
- Reasonable resistance to mildew (6) and brown rust (5) but weak against Rhynchosporium (3) and net blotch (3). Resistant to Barley Yellow Mosaic Virus.
