Research Opportunities, Grower Perspectives

David Smith

Birchip, Victoria.

Barley is approx 25% of our cropped area in the Southern Mallee region of Victoria, other crops include canola, wheat and pulses. Approximately 65% of our barley is malting variety.

When we are planning a crop, 3 of the parameters we look at are

1. Reliability
2. Quality
3. Yield

Today I would like to address these issues from 2 sides

a) What role can farmers play to assist breeders?
b) What role can breeders and end users play to assist farmers?

I would also like to give you a barley growers 10 year wish list-----

A normal year!!!!

and many more
