BOTANICAL NAME: Hordeum vulgare
DESCRIPTION: A 2-row type. A fast, short, hulless barley. Not the highest yielding in our trials, but dependable. Short stems mean less material for compost, but they also help resist lodging (falling over), which in wet, or windy areas can mean the difference between getting a crop or not. Ideal for very short-season areas.
