Concerto has a proven track record with growers, maltsters, brewers and distillers alike, so its popularity is unlikely to wain anytime soon. Sound agronomics, good grain quality and one of the best extract figures will ensure that Concerto remains a most profitable and marketable variety for growers throughout the UK.

Growers may be seduced by newer varieties with higher yields but before you change, consider whether there will be a market for your crop. We also know that as a lower tillering variety, the yield of Concerto can be increased simply by adjusting seed rates.

There is more information about getting the most from this market-leader in our new Spring Barley Growers Guide.
