barley quality

Catalogue: GRDC Research Summaries
Barley grain defects (kernel staining, pre-harvest sprouting and black point) have resulted in tens of million dollars economic loss to the barley industry due to malting barley being discounted or down graded to feed... Development of phenotypic analysis tools for 3 A recently updated "Seedcount" image analysis system was evaluated for barley black point analysis as a replacement for the current visual measurement... Results from the project demonstrate that the Canadian "quality" gene has also resulted in sensitivity to pre-harvest sprouting...

An agronomic research program that can enhance the release of new barley varieties for Western Australia... In the study we aim to quantify the benefit of the current Alt gene and undertake a 'proof of concept' study to see if the inclusion of this Alt gene in future releases might influence the way in which we grow barley... Preliminary results indicate grazing control..

Dormancy and water sensitivity are undesirable post-harvest because barley varieties with these two traits generally need months of storage for the seed to be suitable for malting... Dr Reuss and his team investigated three main options: using agricultural chemicals to break dormancy before or after storage.. After testing a total of 20 agricultural chemicals, the team found that several were so toxic that they could not be used (they killed the barley seed), and many did not effectively break dormancy...

Over the past three years, the GRDC has invested in the development of a new commercial DNA test to cost-effectively identify the variety and purity of wheat and barley samples... Barley was used to validate the technique developed by Diversity Arrays Technology (DArT) because of the high quality of varietal purity that maltsters demand and the small number of commercial varieties involved... Table 1: Summary of DNA analysis of variety identification and purity of 1891 wheat samples Traffic light lettering system used to report sample results Results - all samples (1891) A: GREEN: The sample is the nominated variety and is greater than 95% pure...
