As we wrap up this current barley research cluster, we wanted to talk to the researchers about some of the major takeaways of their work, and how these will impact Canadian barley farmers. We also wanted to understand how this phase of research will inform the next phase, and aim to address some of our industry’s biggest challenges on a longer-term basis.
