Updating Rye and Barley Management Guidelines for Kentucky

Grants and Contracts Details


The boom in distilleries and growing public interest in locally grown foods has combined to generate much interest in barley and rye for Kentucky. These crops have not been studied extensively since intensive wheat management was developed in Kentucky. We conducted an initial study in 2015/16 and would like to add to those trials this year. We expect to identify proper seeding and nitrogen rates for barley, rye, and hybrid rye in intensively managed small grains. We expect to identify whether malting barley can grow and produce reasonable test weight in Kentucky.
