KWS Tardis, the 2-row winter feed variety that’s set to become a firm farm favourite with a performance that rivals many of the 6-row hybrid and conventional types.

But it doesn’t stop there, KWS Tardis has an excellent disease package, boasting 7 for Rhynchosporium and [5] for net blotch and one of the best untreated yields available (85% treated controls). It’s also early to mature (0) and delivers marketable grain with a very good specific weight (70.2 kg/hl) and low screenings.

A slightly older but yet still a very popular bold-grained variety but still grown across more than 10% of the UK winter barley area. KWS Cassia is free-tillering and easy to grow. Its ability to hold on to green leaf through the grain-fill period helps boost yields.

KWS Cassia is medium height, stiff-strawed, requiring a standard PGR regime to ensure security in the field.
