UC Signal barley, developed at the Imperial Valley Field Station, El Centro, within 40 miles of Mount Signal for which it was named, is well-adapted to the lower desert areas of California. In comparative tests over a 3- to 7-year period, it has shown an 8 to 30 percent yield superiority over varieties previously recommended for the Imperial Valley.
