Aims

To present results of the long season barley variety trial.

Key messages
  • As demonstrated by the yields of the varieties barley had quite a good season in the Southwest.
  • The Long Season Barley Variety trial incorporates both feed and malting varieties which are selected to have a late maturity period as this suits the high rainfall growing season in the South West.  
  • Frost damage to the barley varieties at the three sites was minimal because of their maturity stage.
