The UK’s number 1 winter barley
- High yielding 2-row
- Consistent across the last 5 years of trials
- Low screenings
- Medium, stiff straw
- Most widely grown variety in the UK
A Saffron X Retriever cross, KWS Tower combines the bold grain of the former, with the vigour and tillering capacity of the latter. It has medium length straw and is slightly taller than KWS Glacier but with stronger straw.
This longer straw – a characteristic which tends to impart better drought resistance in barleys – may help explain its strong light land performance. Drill it in September, allow it to produce a high number of tillers in autumn and it will pile on the yield in the spring.
