Harland Barley, a new population-variety available in 1968 in California, offers definite (and continuing) yield advantages over other feed barleys in commercial use. The new barley is the result of a 40-year breeding program at the Davis campus of the University of California. It shows yield advantages not only over Atlas barley, the traditional standard of comparison, but also over all of its own ancestors. Harland barley was named in acknowledgment of two of its co-developers, H. V. Harian and Harland Stevens. It is a product of joint research of the University and the Agricultural Research Service of the U. S. Department of Agriculture.
