Press Release - Update November 2018

UPDATE TO MALTING BARLEY COMMITTEE (MBC) APPROVED LISTS HARVEST 2019

The Malting Barley Committee held its Winter 2018 meeting to discuss the progress of new varieties within the testing system, and to review the commercial position of existing approved varieties.

The outcome was that KWS Irina has been removed from the list for brewing.

Please note that the award of Full or Provisional Approval to a variety does not infer immediate acceptance for use by all malting, brewing and distilling companies. Growers are advised to seek further information from their customers before sowing newly listed varieties.

For regional and agronomic information on malting barley varieties the current AHDB Recommended List should be consulted.

The updated MBC Approved List, incorporating the changes described above, is given below:
