Crop Science. 45:792-793.

Interpretive Summary: Barley is an important crop worldwide for animal feed and in the production of beer. This cultivar, Doyce, is a hulless Barley that is high yielding, mid-season maturity, and short in stature with stiff straw. Doyce provides winter barley producers and end users with a new value-added crop having grain that is lower in fiber, higher in starch and metabolizable energy than traditional hulled winter barley, and having potential for use in feed, food and ethanol production.

Technical Abstract: 'Doyce', released May 2003, is the first hulless six-rowed winter barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) developed by the Virginia Agricultural Experimental Station. The hulless cultivar Doyce is high yielding, mid-season maturity, and short in stature with stiff straw. Doyce provides winter barley producers and end users with a new value-added crop having grain that is lower in fiber, higher in starch and metabolizable energy than traditional hulled winter barley, and having potential for use in feed, food and ethanol production. Doyce was selected from a population developed via a series of crosses comprised of 'Sangregado' sib (CMB79-54)//VA90-42-56/VA90-42-22/3/ 'Pamunkey'/4/H585 (1). CMB79-54 is a spring barley line obtained from the ICARDA-CIMMYT barley breeding program in Mexico and used as a parent for leaf rust (caused by Puccinia hordei G. Otth) resistance.
