Stefania Grando, Helena Gómez-Macpherson. (1/1/2005). Food Barley: Importance, Uses and Local Knowledge. Beirut, Lebanon.
The international workshop on "Food Barley Improvement," jointly organized by ICARDA, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, and Institution de Recherche et Enseignement Supérieur Agricole, Tunisia, and supported by the OPEC Fund for International Development, brought together more than 30 participants from 13 countries, representing most of the areas where barley is largely used as food, to review food-barley-based systems and identify production bottlenecks. The participants agreed to establish domestic and international networks of researchers with a common interest in food barley. This publication contains the presentations made by the participants during the international workshop. I hope that it will prove useful for researchers interested in improving the livelihoods of the farmers in the dry areas who depend on food barley for their nutrition requirements and family income.
