Running at a consistent yield average over the last four years in our trials, Cassia can handle all conditions. It is easy to grow and supplies a beautiful large grain which delivers a high yield which is favourable to many livestock operations as an animal feed.
Cassia is a high yielding true two-row winter feed barley from KWS. It has been introduced to New Zealand to satisfy growers’ appetites for autumn sown barley which can achieve exceptional results. Test weights exceed 66Kg/hL and screenings are rarely over 2% in New Zealand.
KEY AGRONOMIC POINTS
Cassia is an easy care variety with outstanding grain weights and low screenings. Medium/tall height with stiff straw, Cassia requires a plant growth regulator programme for the best results. It has excellent disease resistance resulting in a very simple fungicide programme.
