The GIWA Barley Council runs two or three public forums each year for the Western Australian barley value chain to discuss latest developments in consumer preferences, marketing, malting, breeding, research, agronomy & extension, variety rationalisation, variety accreditation, standards and MRLs. The GIWA Barley Autumn Forum is typically held in Perth in the third week of March, the GIWA Barley Rationalisation Meeting in the first or third week of July, and the GIWA Barley Spring Forum in late August (spring) in a regional location with field walks.
Representatives of the trade, maltsters and brewers, Barley Australia, the malt barley technical accreditation committee the MBIBTC (brewers and maltsters), the tertiary research sector, GRDC, DPIRD, the National Working Party on Grain Protection, the Grain Industry Market Access Forum, the National Residue Survey, the Australian Export Grain Innovation Centre, plant breeders, farm business advisors, agronomists, grower groups, and growers regularly participate in these fora.
