This report evaluates agronomic performance of new experimental lines and existing barley varieties in central Montana. The Intrastate barley yield trial was harvested when much of the grain had 15% or higher moisture. Yields ranged from 56.4 bu/a for MT950186 down to 35.6 bu/a for Haybet. Mean protein content was 14.5 %. The early yield trial was harvested on August 12 when the grain was well ripe. Yield range was tighter for the early yield trial than the yield range found in the intrastate nursery. A few of the test lines had test weights greater than 50 lbs/bu while five had test weights of 47.6 lbs/bu or less.
