CRBA148 barley has produced above average yields in all regions in FAR CPT2 trials with very good yields throughout Canterbury.
CRBA148 sowing dates are from June through to early November with high grain size and low screenings. This cultivar is medium to tall and has moderate straw strength.
Protection for scald will be required for early planted crops. CRBA148 has good resistance to net blotch and powdery mildew but is moderately susceptible to leaf rust.
A small quantity of seed of this cultivar will be available for evaluation in 2018.
