Syngenta has announced the launch of its Hyvido hybrid barley cashback yield guarantee for 2017.

Growers who sign up for the scheme stand to receive a pay-out for their eligible registered Hyvido crops if the variety doesn’t yield at least 0.5 t/ha more than conventional barley on independently-monitored reference fields.

“The cashback yield guarantee is designed to give UK growers confidence in the ability of Hyvido hybrid barley to deliver excellent yields,” explains Mark Bullen, seeds and seedcare campaign manager for Syngenta.

The guarantee uses reference fields to measure the yield of Hyvido because it wouldn’t be possible to monitor yields on every field of individual growers, says Mr Bullen. Growers must register to take part in the scheme to be eligible, he adds.

“This is the fourth season the Hyvido cashback yield guarantee has been run. It has been very popular with growers over the years, and Hyvido hybrid barley now accounts for about a quarter of the UK’s winter barley area.”
