Winter Barley Success with Sister Varieties

Limagrain sister varieties; LG Caravelle and LG Capitol, dominate the 2-row feed winter barley AHDB 2024/25 Recommended List.

LG Caravelle performed very well last harvest on the Yorkshire Wolds, for Mark Ullyott of Langtoft Grange Farm near Driffield, and he was extremely pleased with yields between 8.5-9.5 t/ha

“We have grown seed crops of barley for over 10 years, and LG Caravelle must be the best we have seen,” he says. “It is always interesting growing a new variety for the first time to

see how it performs, and we are very pleased with LG Caravelle and will grow it again. If we could, we would put all of our acreage down to the variety,”

says Mark.
