 Canmore is a food grade and general purpose barley with:
excellent yield, up to 115% of AC Metcalfe, and
good combination of disease resistance.

Canmore is well-adapted to the Black, Brown, and Black and Grey Soil Zones of western Canada. It has good potential in the food barley market for shochu because of its excellent pearling properties, starch content, glucose elution rate, and alcohol yields.

Strengths
Grain yields were 111% to 115% of malt check AC Metcalfe. Similar grain yields to the feed check Xena in 2010 and malt check CDC Copeland in 2011.
Resistant (R) to the surface-borne smuts and loose smut, moderately resistant (MR) to the spot form of net blotch, intermediate resistance (I) to scald and common root rot.
Good pearling traits, hardness, alcohol yield and quality traits for shochu.
Canmore showed significantly higher total starch content over AC Metcalfe and CDC Copeland in 2010 and performed equally in 2011 and 2012.
Canmore showed a significantly higher glucose elution rate over CDC Copeland in 2011 and performed equally in 2010 and 2012; and performed equal to AC Metcalfe in 2010-2012.
Higher percent plumps than all checks in 2010 and AC Metcalfe in 2011, similar test weight to the checks, and higher kernel weight than both malting checks in 2010 and AC Metcalfe in 2011.
Similar height to AC Metcalfe and Xena, shorter than CDC Copeland, with lower lodging scores than the malting checks in both years.

Neutral Traits
Maturity 1 to 2 days later than the checks, with similar heading date to AC Metcalfe and Xena in 2010, and earlier than CDC Copeland in both years.
Intermediate resistance (I) to Fusarium head blight and spot blotch.

Weakness
Moderately susceptible (MS) to the net form of net blotch and stem rust, susceptible (S) to barley yellow dwarf and Septoria.
