Description

provided by eFloras
Two-rowed barley. Only the central spikelet of each triad is fertile so that there are 2 longitudinal rows of fertile spikelets in each spike. It is cultivated in Sind, Baluchistan, N.W.F.P. and the Punjab. It can, apparently, ripen in only 3 months so a second crop is often sown in each year.
