|Type: 2-Row Feed||Pedigree: Tower X Salsa|
- The most widely grown two-row feed barley with very good disease and Brackling resistance. Mid-ranking in yield (102%) and average specific weight (66.2 kg/hl) in Agrii trials over the past three years but its performance was below average in 2019 (95%). Over the past three years it has effectively replaced KWS Glacier and KWS Tower as the mainstay two-row feed variety.
- Suitable for all regions and soil types. Relatively short straw (86 cm) and excellent stem stiffness (8). Less competitive against grassweeds compared with California or hybrids but similar to the other two-row feed varieties. Medium-late maturity.
- Reasonable disease resistance against Rhychosporium, Net Blotch and Brown Rust but relatively weak on Mildew so the latter needs monitoring and spraying for.
Resistant to Barley Yellow Mosaic Virus.
