Fertilizing Malting and Feed Barley - SF723

Fertilizing Malting and Feed Barley
 
Fertilizing Malting and Feed Barley
Barley has been an important cash and rotational crop in North Dakota and the region for many years. It is important as a feed grain, but by far its economic value is linked to the malting industry. Barley requires adequate nitrogen (N) for good yields, but since grain protein in excess of industry limits often results in rejection of a crop, and since excess N leads to smaller kernel size, the line between adequate N and excessive N is fine. In addition, excessive N may result in lodging, which lowers yields and increases the incidence and severity of head blight and other diseases in some years.
