- Agrii’s biggest selling two-row barley. Very high treated (103%) and untreated (78%) yields and very bold grain (69.6 kg/hl) in Agrii trials over the past three years. It has consistently achieved higher specific weights than KWS Cassia (68.4 kg/hl) over the same period. Its excellent yield, grain quality and disease profile are attracting growers away from all existing two-row varieties.
- Suitable for all regions and soils with particular appeal to KWS Cassia growers in the West and North who have come to expect big bold grain. Average competitiveness against Blackgrass but similar to KWS Orwell, Cassia and Tower.
- Average height (85 cm treated, 88 cm untreated) and very stiff (8) with medium late maturity.
- Good resistance to Brown Rust (5) and Net Blotch (7) but susceptible to Mildew (3, like KWS Orwell). Resistant to Barley Yellow Mosaic Virus.
