Haymaker Barley (Hordeum vulgare) is a high-yielding two-row spring beardless forage barley. It developed fine, soft leaves and is very palatable. It has excellent fiber digestibility. It is descended from Haybet Barley and demonstrates forage quality and yield potential higher than Haybet and Lavina.

Haymaker performs best in slightly drier soils, but this does not mean it is “drought tolerant”. This is one of our highest yielding forage barley.

Haymaker is frequently a component of our Prosper 3-Grain Forage Mixture
