Early maturing, with medium length and very stiff straw, Daxor will find favour in traditional six-row regions.
Its stand out performance is in the North region, where it equals the leading hybrid.
It is large grained – which doesn’t help its specific weight score – but this will suit those looking for a bold variety for stock feed.
With strong brown rust and Rhynchosporium ratings and one of the highest untreated yields for a barley, Daxor could help where spray timings are compromised.
Daxor is not on the AHDB Recommended List.
