Considerations for Seeding 2021 from the Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre

The Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre (CMBTC) has released a new factsheet outlining 2021 seeding considerations for new malting barley varieties in Western Canada, available at the link below.

Canada’s barley breeders have developed a promising suite of new malting barley varieties such as CDC Bow, AAC Connect and CDC Fraser each with excellent agronomics and disease resistance. These new varieties are poised to succeed older, established varieties such as AC Metcalfe and CDC Copeland. They have very desirable malting and brewing characteristics, reinforcing Canada’s position as a supplier of premium quality barley and malt, and increasingly these new varieties are being accepted by domestic and international maltsters and brewers.
