Successor barley is a novel variety that exhibits tolerance to residual IMI herbicide in soil and crop residue. It is well suited to dryland and conservation/no-tillage agricultural systems in Eastern Oregon and Washington. In a multi-environment trial, Successor met or exceeded the yield of Survivor in all years in all but one location year. Additionally, it had similar protein levels and test weights as Survivor. An on-farm trial showed its potential under standard management conditions in a rotation following winter wheat and was perceived favorably by the grower. Successor provides a new option for growers to add barley into a rotation with Clearfield crops, being only the second released variety with known tolerance to IMI residues.
