Goldeneye Barley


Goldeneye spring barley was developed at the Utah Agricultural Experiment Station and released in 2005. It was selected from the cross of Woodvale/Steptoe/OR3. Its main characteristics are a high yield potential, a low propensity for lodging, and a relatively high test-weight among six-rowed cultivars. Goldeneye was named after two duck species, seen as common migrant and winter residents in the state of Utah.

Goldeneye is a six-rowed, erect-growing, early heading spring feed barley. It is recommended for growing under irrigation in the Intermountain region of the USA. For 3 yr of Western Regional Irrigated Spring Barley tests, Goldeneye’s yield  was significantly higher than those of ‘Baronesse’, ‘Stander’, ‘Harrington’, and ‘Morex’. Among six- rowed types, average test weight of Goldeneye for these trials was higher than that of Steptoe

Goldeneye has shown field resistance to barley loose smut and covered smut.
