The barley harvest in Bulgaria is 70% done, according to UkrAgroConsult.

So far there are no worries about the quality of the barley from the new crop. Test weight is an average of 64 kg/hl, moisture is normal, below 14,5%, and admixtures are within 1-2%.

Some concerns have been expressed about the quality of the malting barley – but so far the new is mostly positive, they conclude.
