Harrison is a 6-rowed barley developed in the early 1960s as a joint release between the USDA and researchers at Purdue University. It is known for its winter hardiness, stiff straw, and resistance to lodging. Dense spikes are rough awned and mature mid-season. Long rachilla hairs on substantial spikes earn Harrison its affectionate "punk rocker" moniker for our grain plots.
