v. Co. of Milwaukee, WI has released its 1993 crop report, with a final production estimate of 400 million bushels for the year. The company said that this is 12.6% less than the 458 million bushels produced in 1992 and 13.8% less than the 464 million bushels produced in 1991.
Barley barley, annual cereal plant (Hordeum vulgare and sometimes other species) of the family Gramineae (grass family), cultivated by humans probably as early as any cereal. acreage harvested for grain is estimated at 6.8 million acres, 7.3% less than the 7.3 million acres harvested in 1992.
