Barley has relatively low water usage compared to other cover crop species, especially during earlier growth stages. Under poor fertility conditions, barley seeds would be a good choice and can help render P & K available for your next crop. Barley provides a good feed quality grain that can be harvested 2-3 weeks earlier than wheat which then allows your double crop/cover to be planted sooner. Compared to oats, barley produces more tillers and vegetation that will remain erect longer after termination. Carbohydrates known as monosaccharides are excrete through the roots to feed the soil biology and barley has been observed to release more monosaccharides than even alfalfa.

Spring barley won't consistently winter-kill as easily as spring oats when planted in the fall. Disease and pests can be a moderate problem associated with barley crops and when used in rotation with other susceptible crop species. Disease is more of a problem in earlier plantings, cool wet soils or hot conditions with high humidity. In high N conditions, lodging can be a serious concern if growing the barley for grain production. Be sure to kill barley 10-14 days before planting a crop or when planting a high N demanding crop terminate the barley before it reaches 9-12".


For many producers this species would be best utilized as a forage crop since research consistently determine its ability to rival oats as the highest quality forage of all cereal crops. Historically barley was utilized as the cereal crop of choice as an emergence hay crop in times of drought. Also boosting the title for the most rapid fall biomass production of all cereal crops. Barley roots support flourishing mycorrhizal fungi colonies and would be a great choice for reclaiming overworked, poor, eroded soils.

Spring Barley Seeds should be planted at least a month before your first historical hard frost to allow for sufficient biomass production. Young plants can commonly withstand winter temperatures dipping down to 17F. Barley can be planted at varying depths but shallower planting depths will speed emergence, which also reduces the risk of root rot. Disease carryover from wheat can be a concern with this species. Spring barley should be sown at 30lbs/A when utilized as a


nurse crop for slower establishing species but oats is still the best species for this use. FORE MORE DETAILS PLEASE VISIT AT https://www.metroagroindia.com/barley-seeds.html
