UPDATE TO MBC APPROVED LIST HARVEST 2021

The Malting Barley Committee held its Autumn 2020 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 LG Diablo has been given Full Approval for brewing use.

Cosmopolitan remains at Provisional Approval 2.

Propino has been removed from the list for brewing.

Concerto has been removed from the list for brewing and malt distilling.

Sienna has been removed from the list for malt distilling.

RGT Asteroid has been removed from the list for grain distilling.

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:
