Interpretive Summary: 'Radiant' (PI 633971), a proanthocyanidin-free two-row spring feed and potential malting barley released in 2003, was developed by the Washington State University Agricultural Research Center cooperatively with the Idaho and Oregon Agricultural Research Experiment Stations and the USDA-ARS. Radiant is widely adapted to eastern Washington and the Pacific Northwest and is competitive agronomically with leading spring malt and feed barley cultivars. Proanthocyanidin-free barley is an improved raw material for the malting and brewing industry because it insures excellent haze stability of the beer, especially when hop extract is used. Proanthocyanidin-free barley also is excellent as feed barley. Radiant is the first proanthocyanidin-free barley cultivar to be bred and released in North America. Field evaluations for disease resistance in trials in several locations in Washington have shown Radiant to have about the same level of moderate resistance to barley stripe rust, powdery mildew, net blotch, and scald as Baronesse, the most widely grown barley cultivar in the Pacific Northwest, but a superior level of resistance to these diseases compared with Morex.
