Barley: Production, Improvement, and Uses
Steven E. Ullrich
Barley is one of the world's most important crops with uses ranging from food and feed production,
malting and brewing to its use as a model organism in molecular research. The demand and uses
of barley continue to grow and there is a need for an up-to-date comprehensive reference that looks
at all aspects of the barley crop from taxonomy and morphology through to end use. Barley will fill this
increasing void. Barley will stand as a must have reference for anyone researching, growing, or utilizing
this important crop.
