Steptoe is a newly released variety from the state of Washington that is being recommended for dryland and irrigated production in Men- tana.

Horsford is adapted for hay production only. It is a hooded, six-row variety with medium Victoria blight. Cayuse would be the best variety for those growers who do not need large amounts of straw for their livestock operations. Rodney would yield less grain but would provide more straw. Kelsey has medium height under irrigation, where it stands better than Rodney but not as good as Cayuse. Kelsey has produced yield that are intermediate between Cayuse and Rodney.
