KWS Feeris

KWS Feeris (BYDV tolerant)





6-row conventional

Amistar x KWS Kosmos


Conventional 6-row with BYDV tolerance

Moderately stiff straw and lower lodging risk

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 (104% treated, 82% untreated) with average specific weight (69.2 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 (97 cm untreated, 102 cm untreated), moderately stiff straw (7) and lower lodging risk.

  • Average competitiveness against grass weeds and medium-late maturity.

  • Good resistance to net blotch (6) (6) and Rhynchosporium (6) (7) but weak against mildew (5) (4) and brown rust (6) (3).

  • Resistant to barley yellow mosaic virus.
