Acclaim Spring Barley
ACCLAIM was bred by German breeding company Ackerman – the same stable that bred our current variety FLORA. ACCLAIM is brought to New Zealand growers through collaboration between Ackerman and Plant Research Ltd.
Plant Research tested ACCLAIM in 2011/12 and promoted the variety to CPT1 trials based on its grain yield compared to Doyen (108%) and Flora (104%).
In New Zealand CPT trials in 2012/13, ACCLAIM yielded 98% of the trials mean with consistent yield across all sites both dryland and irrigated and particularly good performances at an irrigated Dunsandel site (106%) and St Andrews dryland site (102%). The important points of difference between ACCLAIM and FLORA are a shorter and more erect straw, earlier maturity and significantly better resistance to mildew.
A summary of the performance of ACCLAIM from the 2013/14 FAR CPT2 trials is presented below.
