Malting Barley Breeding

Our 2-row facultative/winter 2-row malting barley program is supported by the American Malting Barley Association (AMBA)  and Great Western Malting. Our strategy is to use doubled haploids and molecular breeding techniques to achieve the long-term 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. Malting and agronomic data are available in our annual reports.
