In collaboration with InterGrain, one of Australia’s leading cereal breeding companies, Syngenta brings elite barley varieties, like Flinders, to the Australian grains industry, enabling growers to compete effectively in both domestic and international markets.

David Moody, a highly respected barley breeder with InterGrain, gives us a season update from the field on Flinders in his latest video.

La Trobe is a high yielding, mildew resistant, export malting barley.

STRENGTHS

  • High yielding mid to long season variety available to Western Australian (WA) growers.
  • Superior malting characteristics with improved malt extract levels over Baudin.
  • Resistant to Powdery Mildew and good Barley Leaf Rust resistance.
  • High level of tolerance to pre-harvest sprouting.

For growers looking to introduce Flinders into their cereal program in 2018, please contact your local Seedgro Partner or speak to your local Syngenta representative.
