The Barley Bin: New Varieties Coming Your Way – with Dr. Aaron Beattie

In our inaugural episode of The Barley Bin, brought to you by SaskBarley, we talk with Dr. Aaron Beattie, Crop Development Centre, University of Saskatchewan about new barley varieties.

We cover Aaron’s new general purpose line which is supported for registration in February. It doesn’t even have a name yet (tested as TR19175). We also touch on seed multiplication, including when TR19175 will be available and how the variety registration system works, as well as new traits available for Saskatchewan barley growers in the new variety releases.
