Winter Barley

Seedtech's range of Winter Barley extends from being the exclusive distributor of Hybrid Barley in Ireland, to offering KWS Kosmos, a conventional 6 row that is the highest yielding conventional variety on the market.

Quadra Hybrid Barley tops the 2018 DAFM Winter Barley Recommended list for yield. With Quadra also having the highest yield and best grain quality combination on the 2018 list. Newer Hybrid Barley variety genetics, such as Belfry and Bazooka, are continuing to prove that Hybrid Barley can deliver more grain and more profit for Irish growers; it's been proven in department trials and proven in the field by growers.
