Barley
(Hordeum vulgare L.)

Barley is sensitive to poorly drained soil conditions, grows better in dry than moist hot climates, and can tolerate moderate droughts. Barley is less palatable than winter wheat, but more palatable than rye. 

Varieties:

Schuyler 
Schuyler is a six-row, awned, feed-type winter barley. It is medium in maturity and stiff-strawed. It has shown excellent resistance to mildew and leaf scald. Schuyler topped' all yield tests in New York, Colorado and 83 other USDA test locations. It is shorter, has better straw strength, and is more shatter resistant than other varieties grown in the Southwest. Grain size may be somewhat smaller than other varieties of barley.
