Harvesting, Drying, and Storing Malting Barley To Get Market Premiums

Maltsters will pay premiums for malting barley that has been harvested in good condition and stored properly. Bright barley with good germination, sound kernels and intact husks are required for malting and brewing. 

Please check out these resources from Dr. Kenneth Hellevang from North Dakota State University on the proper harvesting, drying, and storage techniques for high-quality malting barley.
