A sustainable future for Scottish barley

James Hutton Institute researchers produced a podcast summarising the key messages from an event (held in February 2020) funded by SEFARI and SSCR where stakeholders in the barley industry were invited to learn about and discuss barley research. The aim was to understand the main issues that industry stakeholders face, particularly in terms of priorities for future sustainability of the industry, and to explore how barley research can address these needs. The podcast, produced for the virtual Hutton Symposium in November 2020, summarised the main findings of the event, covering agronomic, environmental and economic challenges associated with current and future barley breeding, cropping and processing, and examined potential solutions to those challenges.
