Winter Malting Barley Growth, Yield, and Quality Following Leguminous Cover Crops int the Northeast United States

Variety selection and awareness of agronomic recommendations is essential for farmers to understand how malting barley interacts with other crops in their rotations and how other growing practices could influence crop rotation decisions. Since nitrogen can affect many aspects of barley malting quality, nitrogen cycling is of particular interest when considering how to integrate malting barley into a larger crop rotation. The current experiment examines how integrating legumes into winter malting barley cultivation can affect grain yield and quality, and whether the barley seeding rate changes these effects.
