Barley is an annual cereal grain used primarily for livestock feed and forage, and for malting. Barley grain has a similar nutrient profile to corn making it a valuable and versatile feed grain. Spring Barley is planted early in the spring and prefers well-drained, fertile soils for optimum production (avoid ground that had corn as the previous crop). We carry field-tested barley varieties that fit the diverse needs of producers.
