Alba barley and the OSU barley reserch program
Nice article about the OSU barley research program. The Alba variety mentioned in the article performed much better in 2013 than indicated by this article. Grown organically it yielded more than 6800 lb/ acre of cleaned seed...truly amazing production.

FYI, Alba is a public variety so you are free to save your own planting seed. The only seed supply of any appreciable quantity is at Hummingbird Wholesale. It is certified organic and has been cleaned to about 99.89% purity and has great germination test results. I can send a COA to anyone interested. Available in 2000 lb tote bags only.
