Fertilizing Malting and Feed Barley - SF723

By from Barley. Published on Jul 01, 2015.

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.

By from Barley. Published on Nov 01, 2013.

Barley, oat and rye varieties currently grown in North Dakota are described in the following tables. Successful production of these crops depends on numerous factors, including selecting the right variety for a particular area. Characteristics to evaluate in selecting a variety are: yield potential in your area, test weight, straw strength, plant height, reaction to problematic diseases and maturity. Selecting varieties with good quality also is important to maintain market recognition. Because malting barley is purchased on an identity-preserved basis, producers are encouraged to determine which barley varieties are being purchased by potential barley buyers before selecting a variety. When selecting a high-yielding and good-quality variety, use data that summarizes several years and locations.
