Manny is a 6-row, rough awned, hulled feed barley developed by the Field Crop Development Centre in Lacombe and registered in 2003. Manny is a strong-strawed variety with good lodging resistance for a normal height variety, and has high silage yields in central Alberta. It was tested in the Western Cooperative Trials as BT 562 and H90013004Z; the pedigree is BT 538/BT 626. Manny has a yellow aleurone, with a mid long rachilla with short hair. Manny is marketed by SeCan Association.

As indicated by water use efficiency data (yield per unit of applied water), Manny has as good as, or better, drought tolerance than AC Lacombe.

Manny has multiple gene resistance to scald, as shown in combined data from the Co-operative Tests, Alberta yield trials, and CIMMYT (Mexico). Manny is resistant to the covered smuts and has intermediate resistance to true loose smut.

Manny is well suited to the high-yielding scald prone areas of Alberta. Its earlier maturity is also a bonus for central Alberta.
