Cornmercial yield, another índex for evaluating malting barley

Edmundo Beratto M.1

Three barley gra in yield correction procedures are presented. They transform field trial yield to commercial yields based on grain plumpness values. Example are given, using data of grain yield and grain plumpness from barley trials at INIA's experimental stations. The commercial yield obtained in this way, comprises the grain yield and the grain plumpness value in just one index.
