trigo-blando-banner

Two-row, medium-cycle spring barley.
High production due to excellent tillering and good specific weight.
Good resistance to lodging and highly tolerant to disease.
Variety included by malters in Spain among the group of “”Preferred Varieties””, due to its high quality malt.

In the three trial years it has shown a high potential yield in all the cultivation areas.

Production has been greater in all areas than the HISPANIC variety, except in areas of low production, mainly dry arid and semi-arid areas. It has also outperformed the SUNRISE variety; although in this case the difference has not been significant.

Weight of the hectolitre: HIGH + 3.7 kg/hl/HISPANIC + 1.5 kg/hl/SUNRISE

Calibre: MEDIUM TO HIGH

Alternative variety which allows cultivation in the traditional winter barley regions. It offers potentially high yields and good adaptation to cultivation areas.
As it is not a true winter variety, early sowing is not advisable. It also has a high specific weight. The date of sprouting varies in accordance with the temperature of the area (medium to late in areas with colder winters; medium to early in more temperate areas).
It performs well in response to the main diseased and lodging . It stands out as one of the alternative varieties of barley with strongest resistance to rhynchosporium when sowed early; even so, it is more susceptible that most varieties of winter barley. Interesting variety for malting When grown for this purpose, it is advisable to avoid excessive nitrogenous fertilization.
