KWS Tardis





2-row Feed

11-12 x KWS Orwell


The most widely grown 2-row variety in the UK

Consistent high yields with tall stiff straw

Variety Positioning

  • KWS Tardis remains the market leading variety in the UK, at least for the time being.

  • It has produced consistently high yields in Agrii trials (100% treated, 85% untreated) over the past three years with an average specific weight (70.1 kg/hl).

  • Suitable for all regions and soils with particularly strong performance on heavy soils (106%) in official trials.

  • Relatively tall straw (85 cm treated, 97 cm untreated), stiff straw (8 treated, 8 untreated) and good brackling resistance (6).

  • Like most 2-row varieties, KWS Tardis has shown relatively poor grass weed competitiveness in Stow Longa trials. Medium-early maturity (0).

  • Average disease resistance against mildew (5) (4), Rhynchosporium (6) (7), net blotch (6) (6) and brown rust (6) (4).

  • Resistant to barley yellow mosaic virus.
