Recommendation

MELIA is a forage barley which suits with a cultivation in a wide part of Europe.
Its high stem allows to have a double harvest for grain and straw. Thus, this variety is well suitable for breeders.
Moreover, its low sensitivity to diseases, frost or lodging limit the accidents during the crop cycle and allow to limit the use of phytosanitary products.
