Barley - Organic


Barley - Organic

Hordeum vulgare Annual spring grain. Up to 3' high. Variety: Robust. Moderately frost-hardy. Tolerates drought and alkaline or heavy soils. Does not tolerate wet or acidic soils. May be planted later than other spring-sown small grains and maintain good yields. Seed from early May to mid-June at 100-125# per acre, 3# per 1000 sq ft.

As food grain: Suitable for malting—a local home brewer told us “when brewed with Cascade hops from Fedco Trees, it made excellent ale.” Requires commercial dehulling to use as a cooking grain or flour.

As feed grain: More reliable in Maine’s climate than corn or wheat, with nearly as much feed value, and better feed value than oats.
