With the fast approaching spring of 2016 nearly here, we are now planning for the next round of field trials and the varieties we hope to test. There are many regions that would be suitable for testing these trials and we hope that we can make sure we provide some good connections with many of the local farm communities to stimulate the growing of grains for malting.
This coming month we continue our work with Norges Vel (the Royal Norwegian society for development), as we concentrate on further developing the growing network in Norway, for the opportunity in developing malting quality grains for the local and regional markets. There are many key actors in this industry that should work together in partnership for the future growth of this valuable industry.
We are in the process of formalising our organisational structure and will continue to improve and develop our regional infrastructure for business growth. Linking the grain farmers in the value chain is of great importance and improving regional facilities for the storage of these grains will help initiate a restart to the Norwegian grains and malt industry.
