Hi, this is more of an agricultural question rather than a gardening one! But does anyone know if this wheat or Barley? Or even somthing else? Thanks




It's wheat, barley has long awns (projections from the seed case) that make the whole seed head look quite bristly. They point upwards & rye has them too.
