The Importance Of Varietal Purity In Your Malting Barley
Canada’s reputation for quality malting and malted barley is our brand. It is based on our world-class malting barley varieties, safe and efficient production methods, and robust quality assurance systems.
Producers may be discounted if varietal purity is less than 95% eroding premiums for malting barley. If you are growing malt barley this year, you can take steps to ensure it meets varietal purity thresholds required by industry.
Know Before You Sell: Varietal purity test results take time. Producers should determine how varietal purity results can be arbitrated prior to delivery or as soon as possible after delivery of their malting barley.
