VA00H-137 Barley (Doyce)

Doyce hulless barley, formerly designated VA00H-137, was released by the Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station in 2003.  The name Doyce was selected in recognition of Dr. Doyce Graham, retired small grains breeder of Clemson University in South Carolina, who developed an initial set of winter hulless barley lines from which SC890585 was selected and used as one of the parents in the cross from which Doyce was derived.

Doyce is a high yielding, moderately-late maturing, long awned, six-row hulless winter barley with very good straw strength, test weight, and resistance to leaf rust (Puccinia hordei G. Otth).  Doyce barley originated from a series of crosses comprised of CMB79-54//VA90-42-56/VA90-42-22/3/ ‘Pamunkey’/4/SC890585. Doyce was developed using a modified bulk breeding method and was derived as a F5 headrow selected in 1999.
