Barley crop down through September.
Total barley production for the United States reflecting conditions as of September 1 was estimated at 468 million bushels, according to a government report and the Ladish Malting Co. The yield was slightly less than the August 1 forecast of 470 million bushels.
The nation's barley yield is expected to average 55.5 bushels per acre, 0.3 bushels less than the August report and 0.4 bushels less than the 55.9-bushel yield in 1990.
In the principal six-row malting barley producing states of North Dakota, Minnesota and South Dakota, the government report showed an indicated production of 202.1 million bushels, or seven million bushels less than the August forecast of 209 million.
