U.S. barley yield is expected to rise.

According to report from the United States Department of Agriculture and Ladish Malting Co., total barley production for the U.S. as of September 1 was estimated at 429 million bushels.

Barley yield was expected to average 58.9 bushels-per-acre, a 4.8-bushel rise from August estimates and 3.7-bushels more than the 55.2-bushel yield in 1991.

In the principal six-row malting barley producing states of North and South Dakota and Mlnnesota, the report showed an increase in production to 223.95 million bushels - nearly 34 million bushels ahead of the August forecast.

North Dakota yields increases were reported at 10 bushels-per-acre, while Minnesota and South Dakota experienced yield increases of seven bushels-per-acre.

According to Ladish and the report, the barley harvest in the two-row malting barley states has progressed well throughout southeastern Idaho, southern Montana and Wyoming. Yields have been satisfactory, while quality has varied from excellent to poor.
