CANTERRA SEEDS is pleased to announce AAC Connect 2-Row malting barley has been added to the Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre's (CMBTC) recommended list of malting barley varieties for the 2018/2019 season.
In a recent press release the CMBTC said:
"This year the recommended list contains two new malting barley varieties: AAC Connect and CDC Bow. “Canada has a new suite of varieties that will eventually replace the tried-and-true varieties like AC Metcalfe and CDC Copeland” stated Watts. “While these varieties have served the industry well, disease pressure and lower yields compared with newer varieties eventually render them less competitive.”
AAC Connect is a new malt variety from the AAFC Brandon Research Centre. It boasts high yields, short, strong straw, and excellent malt quality attributes.
