Barley for Africa and Asia - Multi-purpose barley production technologies for food, feed and fodder in the dry regions of Africa & Asia (Barley for Africa & Asia)
The decentralization budget to ICARDA provided under Dryland Cereals has been effectively utilized for establishing the State of Art malting quality laboratory at ICARDA Rabat, Morocco. This will provide an opportunity to in house analyze the grain samples at ICARDA and will generate extremely useful information on parental lines, fixed germplasm as well as small samples from early generations in breeding program. The malting now can be done from a sample range of 100 g (micro malting) to 12 Kg (pilot scale) providing the option to the breeding program. The other instruments for analysis of the malting traits like NIR grain analyzer, San++ for malt diastatic power, wort viscosity and beta glucan content etc. have been acquired and being utilized at ICARDA Rabat, Morocco to analyse the samples and generate useful information about the marketing potential as malt type barley with industry.
