1. www.heritageseeds.com.au Description Grange barley was developed by the Nickerson barley breeding program. Derived from a cross between the two European malting varieties Braemar and Adonis, it is a high-yielding, medium-long season variety with a 3-4% yield advantage over Oxford. With benefits including a high malt extract and good diastatic power, Grange barley offers broad adaptability standing 3-4 cm taller than Gairdner and 10cm taller than Baudin. It has an excellent lodging resistance and high grain harvest quality (excellent test weight and very low screenings). Variety Management / Agronomy Grange barley does not require any varietal specific management considerations. However when considering broader management requirements, please consult extension agronomists from various State Government departments or experienced commercial agronomists / consultants in the relevant growing areas. Key Features • Currently undergoing final year (Stage 2) malt accreditation • High yield potential • Medium / late maturity – similar to Gairdner and Baudin • Medium / short plant height • Broad adaptation to all barley growing areas across Australia • Excellent straw strength and resistance to lodging • Large kernel size and high test weight • High malt extract – superior to Gairdner • High malt yields with good diastatic power.
