North Dakota barley and wheat research updates presented

Presentations given at winter workshops on barley and wheat production are now available on-line at the Institute of Barley and Malt Sciences (IBMS) website. The workshops were held in Dickinson, Minot and Carrington, North Dakota in February and March and presentations were given by North Dakota State University (NDSU) research and extension experts.

February Western Best of the Best in Wheat and Barley Research Update Workshops were planned and funded by the NDSU Extension Service, the IBMS, the North Dakota Grain Growers Association, the North Dakota Crop Improvement Association and the North Dakota Wheat Commission. Topics covered included spring management of winter wheat, saline seep management, small grain disease identification and treatment options, crop rotations, marketing, in-field sensors, and malt barley quality parameters.

Additional support for the Western Best of the Best in Wheat and Barley Research Update Workshops was provided by a special grant from the Small Grains Institute in Red Lake Minnesota.  The Small Grains Institute organizes theInternational Crop Expo as well as supporting other informational workshops and meetings for small grain growers in the region.

Barley production information was also presented at a Regional Barley Update at the Carrington Research Extension Center in March.  Topics covered at this meeting were malting barley risk management tools, disease identification and management, rotations, weed control and soil fertility, barley variety development, barley as a feed grain, crop comparison tools and malting barley quality factors.  Support for this workshop was provided by NDSU Extension and the Carrington Research Extension Center and IBMS sponsors, including the American Malting Barley Association, Anheuser-Busch, Inc., Cargill Malt, Malteurop North America, MillerCoors, the Montana Wheat and Barley Committee, the North Dakota Barley Council and Rahr Malting, Inc.
