Abstract

Higher barley yields per acre, along with preferred malting characteristics, are possible through properly balancing nitrogen fertilizer applications with prior cropping and soil management patterns. The recently introduced 6-rowed malting varieties, Larker and Traill, showed the greatest nitrogen yield response, and malting quality was least adversely affected by the highest rate used. The release of the 2-rowed malting variety, Firlbecks III, along with Larker and Traill, provides northern California barley growers with a choice of malting varieties which are directly competitive with the high-yielding feed variety, Wocus. All are significantly higher yielding than the formerly popular 2-rowed Hannchen. Stiff-strawed Firlbecks III minimizes the lodging problem so characteristic of the older, 2-rowed Hannchen. Larker and Traill may shatter if grown in districts with windstorms at harvesttime.
