Variety Positioning

  • The most widely grown two-row feed barley with good straw characteristics but with rather average disease resistance. Mid-ranking in yield (98% treated, 86% untreated) in Agrii trials over the past three years and average specific weight (68.8 kg/hl, AHDB).
  • Suitable for all regions and soil types. Average height (85 cm treated, 93 cm untreated) and excellent stem stiffness (8).
  • Average disease resistance against Rhynchosporium (6), net blotch (5) and brown rust (5) but relatively weak on mildew (3) so the latter needs monitoring and spraying for. Resistant to Barley Yellow Mosaic Virus.
