High yield, resistance to stem rust, stiff straw and high protein are some of the advantages that recommend Feebar, a new variety of feed barley, to South Dakota farmers. About 4500 bushels of this new barley were released by the South Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station to the South Dakota County Crop Improvement Associations in the spring of 1947. Tests made in different areas of South Dakota on widely different soil types show Feebar to be adapted and capable of displacing some of the older barley varieties commonly grown.
