This experiment was to determine if Haxby and Eslick barley have a tendency toward slower post harvest germination than does Harrington barley. Post harvest dormancy is a primary factor affecting the chance a seed will lay dormant through the fall and winter and volunteer in the crop grown the next growing season. After very minor testing, Metcalfe appears to have little post harvest dormancy and may be similar to the check Harrington. Eslick appears to have a fair amount of post harvest dormancy.
