2-row Feed

Baslic x KWS Cassia


Consistent high yields

The boldest grain of any winter barley variety

Variety Positioning

  • Memento effectively replaced Cassia as the variety with the boldest sample. High yields (100% treated, 85% untreated) in Agrii trials over the past three years, in line with KWS Tardis.

  • It has consistently achieved higher specific weights than any other variety over the past five years. 

  • Suitable for all regions and soils with particular appeal to growers in the West who have come to expect big bold grain.

  • Low competitiveness against blackgrass compared with California but no different to KWS Tardis.

  • Average height (88 cm treated, 96 cm untreated) with a medium lodging and brackling risk. Mid-late maturity.

  • Good resistance to brown rust (6), Rhynchosporium (7) and net blotch (6) but susceptible to mildew (3) which has limited interest in the North.

  • Resistant to barley yellow mosaic virus.
