Spring malting barley
This new malting barley variety was registered in the Austrian Variety List in December 2020, after achieving excellent results in a three-year trial period. Similar to ELEKTRA, AMIDALA shows early head development, but the new variety reaches maturity a little later. Under normal weather conditions, this somewhat longer post-floral period results in an extended grain filling phase. AMIDALA is mildew-tolerant (factor mlo) and shows high net blotch resilience. When it comes to yield, AMIDALA was able to outperform all other malting and fodder barley varieties in comparison over the course of the trial period. Apart from its low protein content and uniform sieving grade, AMIDALA shines with predominantly positive malting properties. Particularly positive are the high extract yields, the advantageous development of protein dissolution, beta glucan contents and wort color.
The contract cultivation of AMIDALA will start in spring 2021 within the course of a large-scale malting trial.
