Spring Barley

Spring Barley Overview

Spring barley has found a very positive place in many arable rotations recently. Whilst its inclusion may have been encouraged by outside influences such as blackgrass control and poor autumn drilling conditions - the consistency of yield and lower growing costs seen in spring barley compare favourably with autumn sown alternatives. In Scotland varieties suitable for distilling are preferred, whilst in the south and east of England malting varieties are grown predominantly for the UK domestic brewing market or for export. Most growers in the western region look for maximum yield of grain (and often straw) from the feed barley market, though several of the varieties with the highest yield potential are malting types.
