Hulless Barley Research Progressing

MOSES Organic Broadcaster reported on research that is underway on developing hulless barley varieties specifically for organic production. A multi-year project led by Oregon State University and funded by USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture’s Organic Agriculture Research and Extension Initiative is progressing in three different regions. It has already resulted in the release of a new variety, ‘Buck,’ and has produced resources that share production and utilization results from trials with feed and brewing barley.
