Zophia is a new malting barley currently in AHDB Recommended List trials. It produces higher yields than leading varieties, treated and untreated and across all regions. Zophia has taller, but stiff straw and superb disease resistance. The improved yields and excellent agronomics of Zophia combined with an exceptionally high specific weight should bring interest from the market.



Zophia produces yields above SY Venture and other leading malting varieties.



Zophia is a malting variety with a superb specific weight (71.2 kg/hl).
