Alestar barley is a Domestic Malt profile barley with medium maturity, 5 days earlier than Gairdner. Maturity is very similar to Commander and Compass. In South West Victoria Alestar out yields Westminster in higher rainfall zones, Alestar yields above or similar to Commander in other regions of Victoria and South East South Australia. Alestar has high test weight, low screenings and a bright grain colour. Alestar has resistance to covered Smut and is MR to Nematode (P.neglectus) and Nematode (P.thornei)
RGT Planet barley is a new high yielding spring barley being introduced into Australia. It has a strong agronomic package that combined with its yield potential will make it an economic option for Australian barley growers. Currently undergoing malt classification evaluation.

Oxford barley is a top-yielding feed barley with broad adaptability & excellent resistance to lodging. It is a short-strawed, medium-long season variety that is photoperiod sensitive; remaining in a vegetative state during the peak frost periods, while responding to increasing day length in late September/early October. It responds well to early planting and is suitable for main season planting.
- One of the highest yield varieties in NVT trials 2010/2011
- A medium-late maturity barley with high yield potential, wide adaptation and excellent resistance to lodgin
- Similar in maturity to Gairdner; large kernal size with good head retention
- Resistant to Powdery Mildew and Leaf Rust
- Moderate resistance to Net Form Net Blotch
