A good economic option
RGT Planet is a new high yielding spring barley being introduced into Australia. It has a strong agronomic package that combined with its yield potential will make it an economic option for Australian barley growers. It will be evaluated for malt accreditation in Australia, but already has malt status in many European countries and with Heineken and Carlsberg worldwide.
RGT Planet has good disease resistance to mildew, rhncosporum, net blotch and brown rust. It also has good straw strength and reduced risk of lodging.
