New GrainSearch Feed Barley shows early promise.

GrainSearch has submitted a potential new Feed Barley line into a limited number of NVT sites this season (2014) in Vic and NSW, to check it adaptability to a range of alternate climate zones.  The Feed line has come from the large scale evaluation program GrainSearch has had in association with Syngenta (UK) over the past 5 years.  Although the line is in the early stages of evaluation, the extremely promising results from the GrainSearch Evaluation Trials at Inverleigh and Marnoo in 2013, have encouraged GrainSearch to commit to a mini-bulk up of the seed line, in anticipation of continued positive trial results in 2014 and 2015.  If the line is still exhibiting good performance at the end of 2015, limited commercial seed will be available for the 2016 season.  Further details will be announced by GrainSearch at the end of this harvest season.
