Relationship of Winter Habit and Malting Quality in Spring ✕ Winter Barley Crosses1
- D. H. Smith2
Twelve crosses of winter ✕ spring barley were made using hardy winter varieties and high-malting-quality spring lines as parents. F3 rows of the progenies of these crosses were classified as spring, winter, and intermediate, based on heading date. Bulks were made within crosses of each growth habit class and malted in micromalting equipment. Quality evaluation of the bulk malts show that malt quality is independent of growth habit. Winter growth habit proved independent of any association detrimental to malting quality.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
