Just wondering if it is frowned upon to do this? I personally hate swathing and the more we can eliminate it the better. Is anyone doing this? Chem Rep said that Heat does not kill germ and its only $5/ac. Might try it on a little seed wheat too.

Maybe I'm in the dark here but since when can u use any product on malt barley!!! It has a open seed to the chemical and will have residue on it guaranteed! If you cant use glfo why could u use anything else? Maybe I'm ignorant about this but always thought only reglone on malt and that is it. Hate to be the guy who screwed a hole boat of malt...

Better check with the company your going to sell the malt to. Most companies have a clause in their contracts stating that there is no desiccants of any kind used on the malt barley. Therefore by doing a contract you are declaring that you didn't use any. I would hate to be the guy that contaminated a big bin in an elevator.
The last I checked there wasn't any chemical registered for desiccation of malt barley. The Canada Food Inspection Agency does not allow it.
I see what you are trying to do but not sure there is an answer

Thats what i assumed, thing is i just don't know anything about the chemical and hey, you never know, it might be special:eek:

All i know is that it is now a certified desiccant, which means we can use it on seed wheat! Thats what the rep said anyway, but he didn't know about barley.

The companies don't want glyphosate on malt because it could kill the germ. Heat as a desiccant would be used alone. You should still check with the company you are contracting with to make sure that they will accept desiccated barley.
