BARLEY

Barley

With the implementation of the programme of breeding winter wheat in the last two decades, we have achieved great progress in breeding barley. It is also indicated by the results od the Commission for the recognition of the Croatian varieties. In Croatia was recognized 4 BC varieties of winter barley and 3 BC varieties of spring barley. Bc barley varieties havee been recognized by the proffession and from the manufacturer, and from year to year increases the number of hectares that are sown with winter wheat varieties of barley. Apart from Croatia, barley varieties are recpognized also in Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia.

Results of barley breeding are 4 recognised Bc varieties of winter and 3 varieties of spring barley. The Bc varieties of barley have found application in production therefore the areas sown with Bc varieties of barley are increasing each year. The Bc varieties of barley are recognised in Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, and their recognition is pending in several states.
