KWS Orwell is the first of a new generation of winter barley crosses from KWS’s market-leading UK winter barley programme.

A cross between KWS Tower and the KWS Cassia type, KWS B95, it is a good looking feed type that delivers a step up in straw strength and brackling resistance.

KWS Orwell currently yields 4% higher than KWS Cassia and is the leading 2-row feed variety.

It is short and stiff, with a nice package of disease resistance scores.
