ASBC Methods of Analysis - Barley-3: Germination

Barley-3
Germination

Summary
The ability of barley to germinate fully and with vigor, which is essential to normal malting practice, is called “germinative energy.” This method evaluates this property and predicts the performance of the grain if introduced into malting at the time the test is made. It also evaluates “germinative capacity,” the viability of the kernels and thus the potential germinative energy at some future date.
