Funky has been the stalwart 6-row conventional winter feed barley on the Recommended List for many years. It performs consistently well across all regions of the UK, with its best performances in the West (103%) and has very high untreated yields (88%), making it an attractive option for growers in that region. At a -1 maturity, it is one of the earliest to mature of the conventional winter barleys. Couple that with a short plant type and significantly stiffer straw compared to the 6-row hybrids, and you have an attractive 6-row option for growers to consider this autumn.
