To assess a number of commercial barley varieties for yield and grain quality.
Gairdner still remains a good performing variety, although both W 13586 and Baudin yielded well. The variety Sloop (Vic) had the highest grain test weight, however yield was down compared to Gairdner. There was no significant disease pressure in the trial, so varietal response to disease could not be assessed. Please consult your agronomist and seed supplier for further information about the barley varieties.
