Barley planting increases in '91.

According to a U.S. Department of Agriculture report which was released June 27, and a newsletter from Milwaukee's Ladish Malting Co., over 8.9 million acres of barley were planted in 1991 in the United States--an 8.8-percent increase over 1991's acreage.

In the six-row barley producing states of North Dakota, Minnesota and South Dakota, farmers planted 4.3 million acres of barley. This figure was 7.5-percent higher than the 1990 plantings, and 550,000 acres more than those harvested a year ago.
