Feeris

Feeris

Variety Positioning

  • A conventional 6-row variety with the added benefit of BYDV tolerance. Tolerance allows growers to reduce insecticide use or better protect yield in high-risk situations.
  • Yielding at the same level as SY Kingsbarn and Belfry over the past three years (105% treated, 79% untreated) with average specific weight (69.8 kg/hl) and low screening losses.
  • BSPB Trait Protection Scheme means a slight increase in royalty for the trait and follows a different approach to the BIPO scheme.
  • Suitable for the South, West, North and other areas where BYDV is a significant problem, KWS Feeris can be grown on any soil type but it performs better on heavier soils.
  • Not as tall as other hybrids (95 cm treated, 100 cm untreated), moderately stiff straw (7) and lower lodging risk.
  • Average competitiveness against grassweeds and medium-late
    maturity. Good resistance to net blotch (5.6) (7) and Rhynchosporium (5.6) (7) but weak against mildew (4.3) (4) and brown rust (5.8) (4).
  • Resistant to barley yellow mosaic virus.
