Malting Barley Breeding

Our mainstream 2-row facultative/winter 2-row malting barley program is supported by the American Malting Barley Association, Busch Agricultural Resources, and Great Western Malting. Our strategy is to use doubled haploids and molecular breeding techniques to achieve our goal: 2-row facultative types with excellent malting quality, cold tolerance, disease resistance, and productivity. On our way to this goal we won’t throw away winter types. Our first 2-row doubled haploids entered into the AMBA Pilot Program are indeed winters: malting and agronomic data are available in our annual reports.

  •  And then there was Full Pint: Years ago we developed an experimental 2-row called BCD47.  Read up and Full Pint, and fill your glass:
