This publication presents general information on market demand by industry sector, variety and Port Zone for each of the malting barley varieties that will potentially be segregated in Western Australia at the 2013/14 harvest (Tables 1, 2 and 3).
This information is presented on behalf of the Grain Industry of Western Australia (GIWA) Barley Council. It represents the expected demand from domestic and international customers of Western Australian barley. Before planting any variety with a malting or food classification growers are advised to talk to their preferred grain acquirer to determine their demand for each malt and food variety, potential premiums and segregation opportunities.
