GrangeR is a Barley Australia accredited malt variety, developed by the Nickerson barley breeding program. Derived from a cross between the two European malting varieties Braemar and Adonis, it is a high-yielding, medium-long season variety with a 3-4% yield advantage over Oxford. With benefits including a high malt extract and good diastatic power, GrangeR barley offers broad adaptability standing 3-4 cm taller than Gairdner and 10cm taller than Baudin. It has an excellent lodging resistance and high grain harvest quality (excellent test weight and very low screenings).
