HOW TO GROW BARLEY

SOWING
Spring barley should be planted at least a month before your first historical hard frost to allow for sufficient establishment. Prefers cool, dry conditions in a well drained fertilize soil are ideal. Young plants can commonly withstand winter temperatures to 17˚F. Barley can be planted at varying depths but shallower planting depths will speed emergence, which also reduces the risk of root rot. Prefers well drained soils to prevent disease.

MANAGEMENT
Spring barley won't consistently winter kill as easily as spring oats when planted in the fall. In high nitrogen conditions, lodging can be a serious concern if growing the barley for grain production. Be sure to kill barley 10-14 days before planting a crop or when planting a high nitrogen demanding crop terminate the barley before it reaches 9-12". Disease carryover from wheat can be a concern with this species.

ADAPTATION
While claims are often made about the wide adaptability of various cereal crops, barley may well be the champion. Spring barley germinates at 34–36 (1–2˚C)˚F and wheat development is promoted at 38–46˚F (3–8˚C). Barley succeeds further north than most other cereal crops in Norway at latitude 70° N and at higher altitudes, it is a staple crop in Tibet. It is not frost tender. flowers from June to August. Barley grain is a staple in Tibetan cuisine and was eaten widely by peasants in Medieval Europe.

TOLERANCE
Barley has the highest salinity and high pH tolerance of all cereal crops. Barley is much better utilized in basic soils than other cereal crops but will suffer in soils with a pH lower than 6.0.

SHIPPING COST
25-lb., 50-lb. and larger sizes ship via ground transportation. We will email you shipping cost separately based on the total weight, your zone and palleting. Ground transportation costs require separate payment.

Soil pH 6.0–8.5. Hardiness zones 4–8. Annual.

Days from maturity calculated from the date of seeding. Average 14,000–15,000 seeds per pound. Sow average of 50–100 lbs per acre, sow 30 lbs per acre as a nurse crop for slower establishing species, 2–3 lb per 1000 square feet. Organic systems should plant 1/3 to 1/2 heavier to allow for some weed pressures. Usual seed life: 2–3 years.

The advantage of winter barley is that it will mature earlier than winter wheat and spring planted barley and winter barley is an improvement over rye for animal forage and grain fodder. As a cover crop, winter barley smothers weeds very well and its early maturity allows for an earlier green manure plow down option. The winter barley we offer is the forage type, bred for the green manure benefit, animal feed and fodder, not for grain for edible consumption.

Our variety is Hoody. Hooded barley is a unique type of feed barley that has hoods, rather than awns. These types are usually cut green for hay or silage. The lack of awns allows for easy chewing by the animals. Hoody is a six-rowed winter (hooded) forage barley. It was released by the Oregon AES in 1995. It was selected from a three-way cross, Dicktoo/Cascade/Hiproly by Dr. Charles Rhodes, retired Oregon State University plant breeder. Adapted to grow in the Pacific Northwest and central to northern California. The parents were selected for winter hardiness and high lysine. It is moderately resistant to scald, moderately susceptible to net blotch, and susceptible to stripe rust and leaf rust.

Tags: Color: Green, Specialty: Cover Crop, Specialty: Specialty: Cool Climate, Disease Resistant, Specialty: Drought Tolerant, Season: Summer.

The wild ancestor of domesticated barley, Hordeum vulgare subsp. spontaneum, is abundant in grasslands and woodlands throughout the Fertile Crescent area of Western Asia and northeast Africa.
