Profile

Status: National List Trials

SENSATION is the first DSV 6 row winter barley variety to be launched in the UK. It contains two very important traits – Barley Yellow Dwarf Virus (BYDV) and Barley Yellow Mosaic Virus (BaYMV) Type 1 and Type 2 protection. This protection is important since seed treatments have no influence on these types of infection. SENSATION is a very high yielding variety with good straw strength and high specific weight. It has performed well in both treated and untreated trials – with and without BYDV virus pressure. It is very early to head and to ripen and is listed as the earliest heading variety in France. Its speed of growth in the spring could make it particularly strong in black-grass situations where it quickly outgrows the weed.

  • High yield and early ripening
  • Resistance to barley yellow mosaic virus (BaYMV) type 1+2
  • Resistance to barley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV)
