Malting. The year of registration in the Plant Variety Register for growing in Ukraine – 2009. Zones recommended for growing: forest-steppe and steppe.

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

Varietal characters. Variety – nutans. The plant is of medium height (70 – 85 cm). Anthocyanin staining of awn tips is pronounced. Awns are long, barbed. The ear is two-rowed, with a moderate wax coating, cylindrical, lax (11.7 spikelets per 4 cm), of medium length (7.5 cm). 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. Large-grained: mass of 1,000 seeds is 54 – 58 g.

Biological features. Maturity group – mid-ripening, growing season length - 89 – 96 days. Lodging resistant (8.3 – 9.0 points), highly drought resistant (9.0 points). The sort has group resistance to the agents of loose and head smuts (8 points).

Economic features. The sort is of semi-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 5.19 t/ha (Volchanskaya SAES in Kharkovskaya region) and 7.32 t/ha (Farm Firm Dzhulinka, Vinnitskaya region). The potential yield capacity is 8.5 – 9.0 t/ha. Grain shows good malting properties: extract content – 80.3 %, protein content 10.7 – 11.6 %, evenness – 97.7 %. The yield of certified seeds is 75 – 85%.
