Overall, barley diseases have the potential to cause very significant costs for farmers... Incidence is 30 per_cent frequency in 30 per_cent of the area, so that the average incidence of the disease affecting the crop is 9 per_cent... Overall, breeding contributes more than 25 per cent of the control for 14 diseases, cultural methods for 32 diseases, and pesticides for six barley diseases...

To reduce the cost of combining traits, molecular markers associated with the genes controlling trait expression have been identified... Breeding lines evaluated under DAQ00175 demonstrated that the new germplasm can alleviate more barley production issues than the previous germplasm or introductions from other parts of Australia... Rather than repeat the outline of breeding activities applied under DAQ00110, information about genes and traits in the new germplasm resource is presented...

Asian beer market holds up local barley.. While there has been a slight lift in European production this year, Mr Caekaert said that for barley to compete long term with grains such as corn it needed a lift in R&D to make barley yields more competitive... We expect to see more competition between the top four big players in terms of malting barley supply - Europe, Canada, Australia and Argentina," he said...

Cereal rust diseases cause significant losses in Australia... Efforts to develop high yielding cereal cultivars with resistance to rust diseases have often been thwarted by the ability of rust pathogens to overcome these genes... The detection of 10 new pathotypes of cereal rust pathogens, resulting in the loss of 5 resistance genes from 2007-2011 highlight the need for ongoing R&D to underpin resistance breeding efforts and ensure industry-wide rust protection...

" Date: 24.01.2008 Quality and price common triggers for global grain p12_barleyglobala The outlook for barley is all about breeding the right grain for the right market at the right price By Brendon Cant Since it was first cultivated in Latin America about 500 years ago, barley has had a special place in the hearts and minds of South American people, acquiring a high social and economic status... Today, rising beer consumption has driven increased plantings of malt barley in Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Uruguay, while the Andean countries Bolivia, Ecuador, Columbia and Peru are home to food, feed and forage barley production... [Photo (left) by Brendon Cant: Dr Flavio Capettini] despite this, Mexico-based barley breeder Dr Flavio Capettini from the International Centre for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) says agricultural research resources have been scarce and the Australian model of rural R&D is one that Latin American countries should follow, especially in barley breeding...

Speaking at the NSW DPI Breeza Research Station while on tour with the GRDC northern panel recently, Mr Clark says GRDC's vigorous commitment to NVT is matched by Australia's breeding companies which run trials at 11 sites... "In Queensland five commercialisation companies are active, running trials on 19 varieties at NVT sites including Biloela, Springsure, Brookstead, Macalister and Lundavra," Mr Clark said... "This number of companies active in development of barley varieties means the crop is being pushed forward in key traits and this is good news for northern region barley growers from Dubbo, NSW to central Queensland," Mr Clark said...

Barley is a major winter crop in southern Australia, ranked second behind wheat in area and production... Development of agronomic practices to improve barley production in new farming systems... Key issues will include sowing time, crop establishment, nitrogen response and harvest management of these new varieties, with one aim being to increase the proportion of the crop achieving malt specification...
