USDA says about Sunshine Barley....

"A six-rowed, rough-awned, early maturing (70 days), mid-tall (95 cm), non-waxy, spring hulless barley adapted for northern environments such as Alaska.

Plant has good lodging resistance and is moderately susceptible to common diseases of barley including scald (Rhynchosporium secalis), net blotch (Pyrenophora teres) and smut (Ustiago spp.).

Spike is medium long (7 cm) and of nodding attitude. Kernel is dark brown, medium wide and long. Possesses high grain yields (3791.4 kg ha-1), good 1000 kernel weights (38.7 g), and test weights (73.4 kg hL-1).

Grain has good milling and baking characteristics with a slightly darker flour (81.10 Agtron units, red mode) and good nutritional quality (13.61% crude protein, 0.39% P, 0.40% K).

Compared with the parent, Thual, Sunshine is 1 day earlier in maturity, has superior lodging resistance, 10.0 Agtron units, (red mode), darker flour color, 519.2 kg ha-1 higher grain yields, 2.9 g higher 1000 kernel weights, 1.3 kg hL-1 higher test weights, and similar disease resistance as well as milling, baking, and nutritional qualities."

    This stuff held up in the high winds of Florida, mtn. Ma. Currently multiplying my seeds by planting a second crop at beg . of august ,looks like it will have time to finish.[only started with 50 seeds ,and had to save those plants from rodents by moving to planters] the work was worth it though , looks like we will have enough seed to do a nice size block next year . Thanks for offering so many grains to choose from. Zuke's farm
