Hindmarsh still dominates: barley varieties for 2012 locations
Aims

To evaluate the performance of new and current barley varieties in the Mallee and Wimmera.

Key messages
  • Hindmarsh, Skipper and Fathom all yielded consistently better than other varieties across all the trial sites.
  • Commander performed the best out of the malt varieties and achieved Malt more often.
  • Hindmarsh dominated the yields and is still worth selecting over any other variety, even in the Wimmera.
  • At current Malt premiums, growing Hindmarsh is a good alternative to most malt varieties.
