Interpretive Summary

Phosphorus, Potassium, and Sulfur on Malt Barley, 2005 Balancing high yield with acceptable grain protein levels is a challenge for malt barley growers in semi-arid regions. Research in Alberta has shown that many farmers under-fertilize their malt barley with nitrogen (N) to avoid high protein, leading to grain yield losses of 10 to 40%.

Phosphorus, Potassium, and Sulfur on Malt Barley, 2004. Balancing high yield with acceptable grain protein levels is a challenge for malt barley growers in semi-arid regions. Research in Alberta has shown that many farmers under-fertilize their malt barley with nitrogen (N) to avoid high protein, leading to grain yield losses of 10 to 40%.
