Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) is part of the family Gramineae.
Research aimed at the genetic improvement of the plant has been cured mainly in the Nordic countries, while in Italy there is little research. The majority of the varieties of barley grown in Italy are German varieties, French and English. The search for improved varieties is focused as ever on the usual key points:
- Cold resistance
- Reduction of the vegetative cycle
- Size plant
- Disease resistance
- Breaking resistance
- Grain quality improvement [/ su_spoiler]
Intended use of Barley
The Barley grain is mainly used:
- livestock feed
- preparation of barley malt
- coffee substitutes [/ su_spoiler]
The soybean (Glycine max L.) Leguminosae of the Papilionaceae family. The United States is the world's largest producer, while in Europe the Soy is grown mainly in France and Italy.
Soybean varieties are classified into groups on the basis of the vegetative cicle, from very early to late. Main varietal characteristics to consider are: reduce height, disease resistance and drought stress.
Intended use of soybean
- Soya Oil
- Soya milk
- Tofu or soy cheese
- Fermented products for sauces or drinks
