What UK Maltsters hope to purchase from this years harvest
UK maltsters are likely to buy around 1.9 million tonnes in total of malting barley from the 2017 crop.
Individual maltsters have always drawn up their detailed intended purchase lists, but such information is both confidential and commercial. However, in an effort to help growers understand the market's needs they have agreed that the MAGB can collate information on the nitrogen bands that maltsters purchase in, and show the significance of those bandings for spring and winter varieties in Scotland and England.
