Concerns that Boortmalt will limit intakes of malting barley from contracted growers to 1.7t/ac have been expressed by tillage farmers.

Growers also fear that tighter specifications and a shift in demand from malting to distilling grade barley could result in as little as one-third of contracted tonnages being accepted for malting.
