This collection provides a comprehensive review of advances in improving barley cultivation across the value chain. Chapters first summarise advances in understanding barley physiology in such areas as plant growth, grain development and plant response to abiotic stress. There is also a review of current developments in mapping the barley genome. Building on this foundation, the next group of chapters summarises advances in breeding with chapters on breeding trial design as well as advances in molecular breeding techniques such as genome wide association studies (GWAS) and targeted induced lesions in genomes (TILLING). Other chapters discuss good agricultural practices and post-harvest storage as well as fungal diseases and weeds together with integrated methods for their management. The final part of the book assesses current research on optimising barley for particular end uses such as malting, brewing and animal feed.

Author Biography

Professor Glen Fox is the Anheuser-Busch Endowed Professor of Malting and Brewing Science at the University of California, USA. Previously, he was a Senior Fellow at the University of Queensland, Australia. He has many years experience working with barley breeding programmes, and malting and brewing industries in Australia and overseas. With these companies, his worked focused on the influence of barley quality on malting and brewing quality. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Brewing and Distilling. Professor Fox has over 250 book chapters, journal articles and conference presentations. He has also supervised over 50 post-graduates students mostly in the area of barley and malt quality. His current research interests include digger deeper into barley, malt, wort composition on beer quality. Professor Chengdao Li is Director of the Western Barley Genetics Alliance, linking Murdoch University with the Department of Primary Industry and Regional Department. Professor Li is an internationally-renowned expert in barley breeding, having helped to develop new varieties such as Baudin which is widely seen as setting the benchmark in malting quality. Professor Li is a member of the International Barley Genetics Sequencing Consortium which has mapped the barley genome, and has published widely on barley genetics and breeding.

He was employed by Cargill Seeds Australia as sunflower plant breeder (1983-88) and hybrid wheat plant breeder (1988-89). From 1989 to 2006, Dr Poulsen worked as a barley plant breeder for Queensland's State Government agriculture department, including providing leadership to the Northern Barley Improvement Program from 2001-2006. He took on the role of Science Leader/Research Director for the state department from 2006 through to 2018; leading the Winter Cereals R&D team from 2006 to 2010 and the Innovative Food Technologies R&D team from 2011 to 2018. Dr Poulsen has also held adjunct appointments with the University of Queensland, James Cook University and Sunshine Coast University. He was a member of the Barley Breeding Australia Board from 2007 to 2011; chairing the Board for the 2007/08 and 2008/09 financial years. Dr Poulsen is currently Director of Poulsen Beechwood Consulting Pty Ltd and a visiting researcher at the Queensland University of Technology.
