Registration of 'Dan' Winter Hulless Barley Academic Article uri icon


  • Dan (Reg. No. CV346, PI 659066), a sixrowed winter hulless barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) that was developed and tested as VA03H61 by the Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station, was released in March 2009. Dan was derived from the cross VA964117/SC872143. It was released for production in the eastern United States as a potential commodity for fuel ethanol, food, and feed production. In the Virginia Official State Variety Trial, the 3yr (20072009) average grain yield (3564 kg ha1) and average grain volume weight (78.3 kg hL1) of Dan were higher than those of the hulless cultivars Eve and Doyce. Dan also had an average starch concentration (66.2%) that was higher than that of Doyce and Eve. Dan provides barley producers and end users in the eastern United States with a widely adapted, winterhardy, hulless cultivar having superior grain quality and moderate resistance to Fusarium head blight (caused by Fusarium graminearum Schwabe).
