Coordinated Agricultural Projects Sponsor 'Combine to Kitchen' Tours

A group of NDSU students and interns follow the processing of malting barley.

A group of students and interns at North Dakota State University was able to follow the processing of malting barley from 'the combine to the kitchen' on July 18.

The tour was organized by Wheat and Barley Coordinated Agricultural Project (CAP) researchers and staff. The tour included stops at the Malt Quality Lab on the NDSU campus, Cargill Malt Plant at Spiritwood and Jim Slag farm near Wimbledon.

A similar tour for the wheat CAP was held on July 11. This tour included stops at the Northern Crops Institute at NDSU, Roman Meal Milling in Fargo and North Dakota State Mill in Grand Forks. Ten students attended this tour along with Bill Berzonsky, NDSU specialty spring wheat breeder and a co-investigator for the wheat CAP.

The tours were free of charge to students courtesy of the wheat and barley CAPs.

The tour was organized by Berzonsky; Karen Hertsgaard, barley CAP information specialist; and 14 students.
