The Growing Point Podcast

Malting barley varieties and markets: now and into the future

July 21, 2022

In this episode of The Growing Point podcast, we chat with Peter Watts, the managing director of the Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre. We chat with Peter about the current status of the malt barley market, where the majority of Canadian malt barley is sold, and where there are future opportunities for malt barley market growth. We also discuss some of the new malting varieties available for malt barley growers, and why growers need to take a keen look at new variety options.
