Winter Barley

Seedtech holds the highest yielding variety on the 2015 Winter Barley recommended list, Hyvido Volume. Hyvido Volume outscore other varieties by a considerable margin in terms of relative yield. Hyvido Volume is achieving 15% higher yields when grown to recommended protocol on farm. In addition it offers good disease resistance, especially to Rhynchosporium and Net Blotch. 

Hyvido Quadra is an exciting new variety coming through which is producing high yields similar to Hyvido Volume. It offers an a superior agronomy package as expected from Hybrids along with good disease resistance against Yellow Rust, Rhynchosporium and Net Blotch. Hyvido Bazooka is another new variety introduced in 2016. It is one of the highest yielders in the UK this year. 

More and more growers are choosing Hybrids to gain numerous benefits. These include: consistent high yields year after year, proven rotational benefits and the ability to thrive under challenging growing conditions.
