Malting. The year of registration in the Plant Variety Register for growing in Ukraine – 2008. Zones recommended for growing: forest-steppe and woodlands.

Originator – Plant Production Institute nd. a V.Ya. Yuryev of NAAS.

Varietal characters. Variety – nutans. The plant is of medium height (68 – 76 cm). Anthocyanin staining of awn tips is weak. Awns are long, barbed. The ear is two-rowed, with a light wax coating, cylindrical, lax (12.2 spikelets per 4 cm), of medium length. Sterile. The spikelet is parallel or slightly deviating. The floral glume is finely-rugose, with feebly marked venation, gradually transiting into awn. Grain is elliptical, yellow, aristulate. The main seta is longly-pilose. Mass of 1,000 seeds is 46 – 52 g. The sort is notable for its highly-productive tilling capacity – 2.0 stems.

Biological features. Maturity group – middle-early, growing season length - 88 – 96 days. Very lodging resistant (9.0 points) and drought resistant (9.0 points). The sort is resistant to barley net blotch (7 points).

Economic features. The sort belongs to highly-intensive types. The recommended seeding rate is 4.0 – 4.5 mln of germinable seeds per hectare. Agrotechniques are conventional for a growing zone, sowing terms are early.

Under on-the-farm conditions the yield capacity of the sort amounted to 5.53 t/ha (Kupyanskaya SAES in Kharkovskaya region) and 7.81 t/ha (Farm Firm Dzhulinka, Vinnitskaya region). The potential yield capacity is 8.5 – 9.5 t/ha. Grain shows good malting properties: extract content – 81.1 %, protein content – 10.0 – 10.9, evenness – 98.0 %. The yield of certified seeds is 75 – 85 %.
