Registration of ‘Dan’ Winter Hulless Barley Academic Article uri icon


  • 'Dan' (Reg. No. CV- 346, PI 659066), a six-rowed winter hulless barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) that was developed and tested as VA03H-61 by the Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station, was released in March 2009. Dan was derived from the cross VA96-41-17/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 3-yr (2007-2009) average grain yield (3564 kg ha-1) and average grain volume weight (78.3 kg hL-1) 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, winter-hardy, hulless cultivar having superior grain quality and moderate resistance to Fusarium head blight (caused by Fusarium graminearum Schwabe). © Crop Science Society of America.
