Malting Barley

Malting barley varieties (two-row)

  • UC-Tahoe (PDF description). It performs well in all areas where it has been tested in the Sacramento and San Joaquín Valleys. ‘UC Tahoe’ combines high yield potential, resistance to the most common diseases in California (excellent tolerance to CYDV/BYDV and Powdery Mildew, moderate resistance to stripe rust), and excellent malting quality in rainfed conditions or under irrigation.
  • UC-Capay (PDF description). It performs well at all areas where it has been tested in the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys. ‘UC-Capay’ is especially beneficial in rainfed conditions where its yield stability is strongly advantageous. ‘UC-Capay’ combines excellent malting quality, low grain protein (about 8 to 10% lower than other varieties), high yield potential,
    and resistance to the most common diseases in California. It has excellent tolerance to CYDV/BYDV, Powdery Mildew, and stripe rust (significantly better than UC Tahoe and Butta 12 for stripe rust).
