The fame of Union beardless bar
ley, a hybrid variety developed at
the Eastern Oregon branch experi
ment station at Union, has spread
beyond the borders of this state, re
ports D. E. Richards, superintendent
of the station.
Seed houses in Arizona, California
and Washington are now stocking
Union beardless, after finding it su
perior to other beardless barleys for
certain sections of their states.
Tn pastern Oregon Union beardless
has consistently out-yielded other
beardless varieties, particularly in
the irrigated and better rainfall sec
tions. Its yields are not consistently
equal to Trebi or Hanncheri, which
are leading standard varieties, al
though it has out-yielded them in
In yield and quality Union beard
less has exceeded its parents, the
common blue barley and an old va
riety known as white barley. It has
given larger tonnage yields for hay
than any other barley variety, and
is comparable to oat and wheat hay
yields. When sown with field peas
for hay, it has out-yielded all other
grain mixtures. It is also used suc
cessfully in seed in thin stands of
alfalfa. It is superior as a hay crop
because of its leafy, soft stems and
beardless heads, making it very
palatable to livestock, Richards re
ports. Union beardless has practic
ally the same cultural characteris
tics as other spring barleys.
For grain the recommended rate
of seeding is 72 pounds per acre, but
when sown alone for hay, 80 or 90
pounds is best, while about 75 pounds
is recommended in a mixture with
peas. It requires smut treatment
when sown for grain, but this is un
necessary when the crop is intended
The cross which resulted in this
successful variety was made by the
late Robert Withycombe about 1920
when he was superintendent of the
Union branch station. It was re
leased to the farmers about 1928 and
has become increasingly popular
with growers since that time.
