BMBRI Board of Directors has approved a $140,000 in total grants for breeding, agronomy and quality research projects in 2017-18. This includes the final year annual contribution to the 2013-2018 Agri Innovation Program (AIP) Barley Breeding and Research Cluster (BMBRI annual grant of $87,175), plus over $50,000 for a number of other non-AIP breeding and research projects. BMBRI’s Board of Directors has also allocated provision for potential additional projects that may be submitted during 2017 that can address BMBRI’s research goals for improved malting barley quality traits and best management practices for malting barley production and selection.
