Technical Abstract: The National Small Grains Collection(NSGC)maintains more than 24,000 accessions of cultivated barley. Passport and descriptor data are maintained on the Germplasm Resources Information Network(GRIN). Descriptor data for reactions to disease and insect pests, agronomic, and quality traits were analyzed. Key countries and regions of the world where particular traits are found were identified based on the accession improvement identifying appropriate germplasm for research and breeding.
