Georgia Forages: Barley

Dr. Dennis Hancock,
Forage Extension Specialist
Crop & Soil Sciences Dept.

Barley is a small grain that is occasionally used on fertile sites in north Georgia but is not widely grown in south Georgia. It is winter-hardy but produces less forage and is more susceptible to disease than the other small grains. Thus, barley is not a recommended forage species in Georgia.
