Winter barley may not be a new crop for Ontario growers, but a combination of factors is making the cereal crop an attractive option to include in rotation. Top Crop Manager associate editor Alex Barnard chats with Joanna Follings, cereals specialist with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA), about winter barley’s benefits and challenges, and considerations to make before seeding.
