This report evaluates the agronomic performance of new experimental lines and existing barley varieties in Central Montana. Yields in the Intrastate Trial ranged from 48.2 to 82.3 bu/a with the average yield equal to 69.8 bu/a. Grain yields in the Early Yield Trial ranged from 47.6 to 79.8 bu/a with the average yield being 68.5 bu/a. Blowing sand cut leaves off of the emerging barley seedlings but May and June precipitation promoted vigorous growth. Good grain yields and high grain proteins were obtained but test weights and percentage of plump kernels were low.
