The Malting Barley Committee held its’ Autumn 2021 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 no variety status changes were made, with decisions reached at the Spring 2021 meeting all upheld.
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.
