North Dakota 2012 Barley Harvest Tour

As barley harvest progressed from 2 to 14 percent complete, the Institute of Barley and Malt Sciences, the North Dakota Barley Council and the North Dakota Grain Growers Association led a barley harvest tour in central North Dakota on July 16-18.

The tour started in Fargo at the Northern Crops Institute with overviews of barley breeding, agronomy and production trends in North Dakota. Tours of NDSU research facilities, plots and greenhouse, a large malting facility and a grain elevator complex were included in the trip. Field stops with 4 North Dakota growers showcased barley production and harvest operations including crop scouting, combining, transporting and storage. Close to 30 grain buyers, maltsters, brewers and researchers attended the Barley Harvest Tour.

The tour was sponsored by Anheuser-Busch, Inc., Fargo Beer Company, Institute of Barley and Malt Sciences, North Dakota Barley Council, North Dakota Grain Growers Association, NDSU Department of Plant Sciences and the Northern Crops Institute.

Doyle Lentz, Chairman of the North Dakota Barley Council and a North Dakota barley producer, and Chris Swersey, Technical Brewing Projects Coordinator for the Brewer's Association, examine six-rowed barley near Carrington, ND on July 18, 2012.
