Breeding insights

"This Spring Barley was specifically bred for the Scottish grain distilling market, and has the right quality and agronomics to fit the bill. For quality, FAIRING has inherently very high grain N and big grain, with low screenings and high specific weight. Agronomically, FAIRING is the earliest maturing variety on the AHDB Recommended List, and has the highest resistance to Rhynchosporium available, both very useful attributes for Scottish growers."
