Valor barley is a beardless winter barley bred for forage. It is winter hardy enough to survive south of NE/IA and southern Idaho and does very well in the Intermountain West. Valor is a component of our fall forage mixtures.

Our forage and seed production fields have been outstanding performers with forage heights over 4′ tall and seed yields in excess of 150 BU per acre. It can be planted as a stand alone item or used in a forage mixture with other fall forage crops like wheat, triticale, peas or winter rye. Valor Barley is a foundational component of our Fall Forage Mixtures.

Valor is a PVP variety licensed throughout TriCal and Northern Agri Brands
