Recommended barley varieties for 2017

The Canadian Malt Barley Technical Centre has released its annual list of recommended barley seed varieties for the 2017 planting season.

There are several two-row varieties on the CMBTC’s list (see table below), but only three recommended varieties of six-row barley. FP Genetics distributes pedigreed seed for two of these varieties, Legacy and Tradition. Canterra Seeds distributes pedigreed seed for the third two-row variety, Celebration. The CMBTC notes that there is limited demand for each of these six-row varieties.

Two new two-row varieties will be in the seed propagation stage in 2017. AAC Connect is being propagated for the market by Canterra seeds; SeCan is growing out CDC Bow.
