KWS HAWKING

The low risk, high yielding feed barley for the East and West

  • High-yielding 2-row feed barley performing well in the AHDB East and West
  • Stiff strawed
  • Early to mature with excellent grain quality

Characteristics

About

KWS Hawking has exceptional yield potential and will appeal to growers in the East (102%) and West (101%) where, in KWS trials, its best performances have been seen to date. It is a low-risk variety with no major weaknesses and is a natural progression from KWS Orwell for growers that are looking for a step-up in yield; it’s also the ideal choice for growers looking for that same stiff straw they’ve come to rely upon with Orwell. KWS Hawking does not require the same attention to detail on PGR applications as many commercialised 2-rows, which will be a big bonus for those looking to reduce inputs or stretch application windows. KWS Hawking boasts a strong set of agronomic features with no major disease weaknesses and resistance to BaYMV. An added benefit is that KWS Hawking is an earlier maturing type; in KWS trials for the past few seasons, KWS Hawking has been significantly ahead of its stablemates in reaching ear emergence in May.

  • High yielding 2-row winter barley, performing especially well in the AHDB East and West
  • Stiff strawed
  • Early to mature with excellent grain quality

Characteristics

About

KWS Hawking has exceptional yields and will appeal to growers in the East (105%) and West (103%) where, in KWS trials, it has recorded its best performances to date.

It is a low risk variety, with no major weaknesses and is a natural progression from KWS Orwell. As such, it is the ideal barley for those looking for the same stiff straw as KWS Orwell but yields on a par to KWS Gimlet. It doesn’t require the same attention to detail on PGR use as many commercialized 2-rows which will be a big bonus for many.

KWS Hawking boasts a strong set of agronomic features, with no disease weaknesses and resistance to BaYMV. An added benefit is that KWS Hawking is an earlier maturing type. In our own KWS UK trials for the past 2 seasons, the variety is significantly ahead its stablemates in reaching ear emergence in May.
