Topics include:


Winter barley – does it have a place in regions with higher yield potential compared to spring germplasm?

Winter barley is not a new crop but with a move to earlier sowing dates and a range of new European germplasm could that perception be changed? Dr Porker looks at the difference between winter and spring germplasm and its suitability for earlier sowing.
