Fall Planted Sardinian Barley
(Hordeum vulgare); 2-rowed; Landrace; Facultative - fall planted
2020 is only the 2nd season we've planted Sardinian in the fall. Both times, the over winter survival rate here in Southeast Michigan was greater than 95%. It will take a few more seasons to experience the full wrath of winter's forces.
This is the fall planted strain of our regular spring planted Sardinian Barley. The spring strain yields a larger harvest, however, the fall planted was harvest 17 days earlier.
Perhaps in a season with very poor spring planting conditions, the benefit of planting barley in the fall will be more striking.
