Varietal characters. Variety – nutans. The plant is of medium height (70 – 82 cm). Anthocyanin staining of awn tips is moderate. Awns are long, barbed. The ear is two-rowed, with a moderate wax coating, cylindrical, lax (11.9 spikelets per 4 cm), of medium length. Sterile. The spikelet is deviating. The floral glume and the awn of the middle spikelet are longer than the caryopsis. 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 – 54 г. The sort is notable for its highly-productive tilling capacity – 1.6 stems.

Biological features. Maturity group – mid-ripening, growing season length 84 – 94 days. Very lodging resistant (9.0 points) and drought resistant (9.0 points). The sort has group resistance to the agents of loose and head smuts (8 – 9 points), powdery mildew (7 points) and to concealed stem pest (8 points).

Economic features. The sort is of intensive type. 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 5.47 t/ha (Volchanskaya SAES in Kharkovskaya region) and 7.13 t/ha (Farm Firm Dzhulinka, Vinnitskaya region). Even under extremely dry conditions in 2011 the Parnas yield capacity at the State-owned Enterprise Research Farm Elitnoye in Kharkovskaya region was 3.90 t/ha. The potential yield capacity is 8.5 – 9.5 t/ha. Grain shows good malting properties: extract content – 81.0 %, protein content 10.5 – 10.9 %, evenness - 98.3 %. The yield of certified seeds is 75 – 85%.

Patent No 0870. State registration number 04012022.
