CDC Maverick is a 2 row, smooth awned forage barley with CDC Cowboy parentage. CDC Maverick has very high forage yield potential and very large plump grain with high test weight. CDC Maverick is ideally
suited to lower input management and areas with lighter soils or drought conditions but will produce top forage yields under almost all conditions across Western Canada. We kept a close eye on our 2019 CDC Maverick to see how this forage variety compared to our regular feed barley fields. CDC Maverick developed far more biomass and showed rapid spring growth to compete with weed pressure. Our annual forage blend trials with forage barley, forage oats, and forage peas saw the CDC Maverick barley/DL Goldeye pea blend rise to the top in both total tonnage and feed value.
