Visitors to the Agrii stand at CropTec will have the opportunity to win two tonnes of seed of new, very high yielding malting barley, Laureate for 2017 planting courtesy of Syngenta and MasterSeeds.

Yielding only fractionally behind RGT Planet in the latest five-year AHDB Recommended List trial data, Laureate has the advantage of being non-GN for the widest market suitability.

The Syngenta variety is being registered across Europe for the broadest market appeal and is currently under test by IBD for both brewing and malt distilling to give it significantly greater marketability than current malting standard, Propino.

“As well as all the right quality and yield characteristics, Laureate has the highest untreated grain yield on the RL courtesy of its very strong across-the-board disease resistance as part of an excellent agronomic package,” noted Agrii national seeds manager, Barry Barker.

“The two tonnes of seed we are offering in our free-to-enter CropTec competition will be sufficient for just over 10 ha of planting at normal rates, making it a very attractive prize for anyone planning to grow spring barley in 2017.”
