Instruction for submitting seeds for Barley field day

13th International Barley Genetics Symposium


Location and time of demonstration

Field demonstrations will be located at PRIEKULI (Institute of Agricultural Resources and Economics, Priekuli Research Centre, 57.31 N, 25.32 E) which is 100 km east of the capital Riga.

Barley material, sowing and treatment of plots

Please, use the form on 2nd page to submit barley seed.

Spring barley, comprising research material or advanced breeding lines is expected.

Material will be sown in a conventionally managed breeding field with mineral fertilizers applied in order to obtain 5 t/ha grain yield, one application of herbicide, insecticide if required, and no fungicides. We will do no seed treatment; please send treated seed if you prefer to!

One plot per accession will be sown (no replicates) with the main aim to visually demonstrate line performance during the symposium. We usually sow 400 germinable seeds per 1 m2 and suggest you use the same (or different seeding rate if you prefer) and send the exact amount of seeds for the plot size you choose.


To ensure that space is allocated for your submissions, please return the form below with your information by January 31st 2022

Spring barley seeds need to arrive not later than April 1st 2022

Please check to determine if there are any restrictions on sending seeds for research purposes from your country to Latvia (European Union) and to obtain the necessary permits!  No Import Permit is required to send barley to Latvia, however a Phytosanitary Certificate is recommended.

Looking forward to seeing you, and your barley, in Latvia and particularly in Priekuļi in summer 2022!
