CDC Austenson

CDC Austenson

CDC Austenson is a 2-row hulled feed barley with top grain yield and short, strong straw. CDC Austenson produces grain yields higher than Xena, along with high test weight and large, plump kernels. CDC Austenson is well-adapted across western Canada, and compared to Xena, has shown improved resistance to prevalent races of net form net blotch, spot form net blotch and spot blotch. This variety is particularly well-suited to producers seeking a top-yielding, 2-row feed barley with improved performance over Xena.
