Hybridizing barley: a step change in productivity

Watch a farmer talk about how HYVIDO® hybrid barley increases yields

Our commitment

to make crops more efficient

From a self-pollinating variety to an outcrossing hybrid

Through our knowledge of plant genetics, we’ve changed barley from a self-pollinating variety to one in which pollen flows from male to female plants. This means we can create hybrids with high yields and robust vigor. With the use of agronomic protocols, seed production can be maximized.

Frank Edelbauer, who plants HYVIDO® hybrid barley on his farm in Germany, says it “has made a good impression on us” by delivering high grain weights and good yields.

2 per cent productivity increase
