One of IBC’s main objectives has been to fund research projects that would be an investment to the Idaho barley industry. Over the years, we have seen research funded by the commission lead to better barley varieties, an increase in production, and better cultural practices. We take pride knowing that some of the best barley grown comes from IDAHO!
Below is a list of research projects IBC is currently funding. If you are interested in receiving detailed information regarding our research projects, please call our office at (208) 334-2090 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
