Barley Crop Damage

Barley Crop Damage in Idaho Barley Crop Damage in Idaho
IDAHO FALLS, Idaho -

Too much rain in recent months has caused an estimated $100 million in damages to barley crops in Idaho.

Idaho Barley Commission's Kelly Olson says wet weather ruined an estimated 15 to 20 million bushels of barley. That's out of 48 million bushels of barley.

The Post-Register reports (http://is.gd/w2eCdn ) that the grain shortage will likely affect the brewing industry as well. Idaho produces more barley than any other state, with the bulk going to brewing beer.

In August and September, nearly 5 inches of rain was recorded at the Idaho Falls Regional Airport. That rain caused sprout damage on barley fields throughout eastern and southern Idaho and wiped out entire crops.
