Interpretive Summary: Barley is an important crop worldwide for animal feed and in the production of beer. This cultivar 'Thoroughbred' is a high yielding, awned, six-rowed, hulled winter-feed barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) that was developed and released May 2003 by the Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station. Thoroughbred is well-adapted to winter barley production areas across the mid-Atlantic and southeastern regions of the United States. The name Thoroughbred was selected to denote the superior seed quality of this cultivar, which produces exceptionally bright plump kernels in warm humid environments of the East Coast.

Technical Abstract: 'Thoroughbred' is a high yielding, awned, six-rowed, hulled winter-feed barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) that was developed and released May 2003 by the Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station. Thoroughbred is well-adapted to winter barley production areas across the mid-Atlantic and southeastern regions of the United States. The name Thoroughbred was selected to denote the superior seed quality of this cultivar, which produces exceptionally bright plump kernels in warm humid environments of the East Coast. Thoroughbred was derived from a cross between VA90-44-110 and 'Plaisant' (PI 584894). The pedigree of the female parent VA90-44-110 is CIho 8618/'Surry'//'Sussex'/3/'Henry', 'Maury', VA79-44-167 (1,2,3,4). CIho 8618 (PI 178381) is an awned winter barley accession from Turkey that was used as a source of resistance to scald [caused by Rhynchosporium secalis (Oudem.) J.J. Davis].
