In this age of rapidly changing technology and increasingcosts, growers need to be aware of the latest advances in production andmanagement to ensure maximum profitability. The Western Australian barley industry is presently in good shapeand initiatives such as the continued focus on quality and end-user service are being undertaken to ensure this continues in the future. Essential to this success will be the need for improved malting varieties. The Barley Fast Track Breeding Program is showing results, having provided funding for the development of several new lines of feed and malting barley due for release in 1996 and 1997.
