Laureate spring barley delivers consistent yield performance

Spring Barley
Laureate in ear in Scotland

LAUREATE is the most popular spring barley grown across the UK, partly due to the fact it is so consistent on farm.

LAUREATE joined the Recommended List in 2016, and despite some of the competition starting out as higher yielding, over the past 5 years LAUREATE has maintained yield more successfully where other varieties have declined sharply.

Despite different seasons and weather pressures, LAUREATE has strong and consistent yields each year, and so it still competes favourably with newer varieties in both the brewing and malt distilling sectors.

The variety's large rooting system and large tillering ability mean LAUREATE is able to produce high yields whatever the weather and therefore performs consistently season after season. 

Consistent yield, coupled with continued high demand from maltsters, brewers and distillers makes LAUREATE a strong choice for 2022.
