Dan Barley
(Hordeum vulgare L. subsp. vulgare); Awned; Hulless; 6-Row;
"Dan is a broadly adapted, winter hardy hulless cultivar having very good straw strength, superior grain quality, and resistance to fusarium head blight (Fusarium graminearum). Juvenile plants exhibit erect growth habit in early spring; flag leaves are slightly waxy and upright at booting; leaf sheaths and stems are waxy and anthocyanin is not present in leaves or stems. Kernels are naked and short with colorless aleurone and lacking hairs on the ventral furrow. Dan has good resistance to lodging and tolerance to straw and neck breaking. Head emergence in Virginia (116 d, Julian) is most similar to that of the hulled cultivar Thoroughbred. The six-rowed spikes of Dan are erect, tapering, and slightly waxy with no overlapping lateral kernels; rachis is covered with hairs; glumes are of medium length, with no hairs, and their awns are smooth and greater than the glumes in length; lemma awns are rough and longer in length than the spike. The basal marking of the lemma is a transverse crease."
