    CoAXium® Barley Varieties

Only Superior Varieties Are Included in the CoAXium® Barley Production System.

AGT barley varieties that are part of the CoAXium® Barley Production System are bred in Australia, for Australian conditions. These varieties have been chosen for their high and stable yield, wide adaptation, grain quality and disease resistance, whilst carrying tolerance to Aggressor® herbicide to give growers another weapon in the fight against grass weeds.

The Strength of CoAXium® Barley Stems From Strong Varieties.

The first CoAXium® Barley variety is Titan AX. This variety is expected to perform best in low to medium rainfall environments where Compass has traditionally been used with success. Titan AX has a similar plant type and maturity to Compass, and along with offering tolerance to Aggressor® herbicide, also offers higher yields.
