Give ’em both barrels!

  • High yielding soft wheat, especially in the North
  • Good physical grain quality and stiff straw
  • OWBM resistant



KWS Barrel is the high yielding, Group 3 variety. With a 240 Hagberg and 76.9kg/hl specific weight, it has good grain quality and is the ideal choice for the UKS markets. A Viscount type in the field and with a prostrate growth habit, KWS Barrel performs well across the whole UK and has good figures in the North and on light land. KWS Barrel is very short and stiff, with good disease resistance, including OWBM.

KWS Barrel is no longer recommended. All data is taken from the 2021/22 Recommended List.
