Barley production up.

Barley production up

According to a recent government report, total barley production for the United States was estimated at 401 million bushels as of September 1 - approximately 2.3 percent more than the August 1 forecast of 392 million bushels.

The report also noted that the barley yield is expected to average 46.9 bushels per acre, an increase of 1.1 bushels over the August report and 8.3 more than the 38.6 bushels yield in 1988.

Additionally, the principal sixrow malting barley states of North Dakota, Minnesota and South Dakota show an indicated production of over 154 million bushels, judging by the government's report. This is approximately 8 million bushels more than the August forecast of 146 million, but, according to a barley growers' newsletter, the increase is "approximately what we and others had anticipated."
