Administrative History of Brewing Malting Barley Research Institute

Activities of the malting and brewing industries in the barley improvement were formalized in 1948 when the Barley Improvement Institute (now the Brewing and Malting Research Institute) was established to cooperate and assist, financially and otherwise , in the development and testing of improved barley varieties and to disseminate factual information on the production, improvement, marketing and processing of malting barley. Sixty eight years later the Institute continues to provide variety evaluation & funding from its Winnipeg office.* For a more detailed history consult Box 1 Fd. 2 & Box 25 Fd 3 of the fonds.
