Barley Breeding Australia (BBA)-West operated collaboratively as a part of a national barley breeding strategy to address industry needs in Western Australian (WA) and south eastern (SE) Australian regions with neutral to acid soils... The resulting malting varieties (Baudin and Hamelin ) represented significant improvements in malting quality and there has been strong demand for these varieties in the international marketplace... The germplasm and knowledge developed in this project has provided, and will continue to provide, strong support to the ongoing development of commercially successful, targeted-to-market, elite malting and feed barley varieties by commercial barley breeding entities...

The project will ultimately seek to provide costeffective screening methods that enable pulse chemists to identify genotypes that have preferred cookingandsensoryattributes... The project will provide genetic materials and molecular tools for barley breeders to use in developing new malting barley varieties with minimum riskof head loss... The objectives of the project are to develop a scientific understanding of the genetic control and environmental basis of differences in HLW and screenings in wheat under normal growing conditions, and to developselection tools to help breeding programs developvarieties that willbe less prone to exhibit low HLW andhigh screenings...

The Grain Industry Association of Western Australia (GIWA) has convened the GIWA Barley Standards Review Committee to review barley standards in WA... GIWA is responsible for setting the grain standards in WA and plays an important role in the industry's self-regulation of grain standards, which aim to continue to lift the value of the barley industry... GIWA will use the feedback received to prepare a response for industry, shared with Grain Trade Australia, by the end of February 2016...

Over the four years, 45 field trials were used to measure the response of new varieties to factors such as plant population, phosphorus rate, nitrogen rate and sowing time, and combinations of these factors... The phenology of varieties was recorded for a range of sowing times at sites from Wagga Wagga to central QLD... All results and publications from this project will be distributed freely and no intellectual property (IP) issues will be involved...

In 1993, a GRDC grant of $50,000 helped launch the fledgling Tasmanian whisky industry... [Photo (left) by Melissa Marino: Mark Littler, chief distiller at Hellyers Road Distillery in Burnie, Tasmania.] "We all came along at the right time," says the brewer, Brian Poke, who had turned his attention from beer to whisky-making as the new high-quality malting barley variety Franklin emerged... Hellyers Road chief distiller Mark Littler says the distillery, which is also home to a restaurant and visitors' centre offering tours and retail sales, has potential to increase its throughput as new markets for the whisky and a new grain-based vodka line develop...
