 Chigwell was developed by the Field Crop Development Centre in Lacombe and is available from SeCan. Chigwell is a six-rowed, smooth-awned, hulled feed barley. It is well-adapted to the Black, Brown, Black and Grey Wooded and Irrigated Soil Zones of western Canada. This variety combines both desirable traits of relatively high grain and forage yields similar or near to Vivar.

Chigwell was tested in the Western Cooperative Barley Trials as BT577 from 2006 to 2007; it was also tested as FB418 in the Western Forage Barley Cooperative Trials from 2006 to 2007. The parentage of Chigwell is Mahigan/H87020005.

Chigwell would make a good multi-use feed barley for western Canada. The FCDC yield data shows grain yields comparable to checks and outyields Vivar under irrigation. This variety has medium height and good lodging resistance similar to Vivar and better than AC Rosser with percent plump comparable to Vivar and AC Rosser.

Chigwell has moderate resistance to scald, spot blotch and spot-form net blotch, resistant to covered (U. hordei) and false loose smut (U. nigra). It also has a higher greenfeed biomass and silage potential higher than Vivar in FCDC tests.
