Breeders comments

The outstanding yield performance of Yeti (tested as AGTB0043) compared with other barley varieties in the northern region is impossible to ignore and has been the driving force behind the decision to offer Yeti to growers in the north.

Yeti was selected from advanced germplasm sourced from the University of Adelaide, and is closely related to Compass. Yeti shares the same strong grain quality characteristics with its parent, producing high test weights and excellent grain size. Yeti has a shorter plant height than Compass, offering improved standability.

Yeti has been accepted into the Grains Australia malt accreditation program, with stage 2 malt evaluation being carried out in 2023. Yeti is deliverable into the Barley/Feed grade.
