Thread: spring barley advice wanted

  1. #1

    Default spring barley advice wanted

    Thinking of planting spring barley in march any sugestions for strain? I was thinking Tesla or Octavia. The barley is for feed, what grows well here?

    Tesla is a feed variety and is doing quite well havent heard many growing Octavia here as it is a newer malting approved variety, have found Waggon still doing well this far North.

    Thanks hadn't heard of Waggon but looks like a good option for us given the high straw yield. Where is the nearest seed merchant or do you know a willing farmer? Will be needing it in slightly larger quantities than my normal veggies but not tonnes have about 1/2 acre to plant up.
