Baldwin barley was developed at the Utah Agricultural Experiment Station and released in 2014. Plant Variety Protection was sought in 2012 and later issued as PV 201200469. It is a tall, six-rowed, winter habit awnless barley. When planted as forage, it is usually mixed with an awnless wheat and an awnless triticale (wheat/rye cross).

Baldwin Barley must be planted by mid-October to maintain the awnless character. If it is planted later than October 15 a beard expression will emerge. This may also be the case if the plant is stressed during its development.

  • Fall planted
  • Must be irrigated
  • Forage feed
  • Intermountain region of U.S.
  • Awnless, making it easier for animals to eat
  • The forage has a high nutrition content when compared with wheat and triticale
