Description: Barley production in the highlands of Mexico dates from the time of the Spanish conquest. Today, all of the barley planted in the region is used for malting to produce beer. Globalization, most notably the North American Free Trade Agreement, is prompting farmers to look for new crops, such as forage barley, which appears to offer an economically viable alternative to malt barley production.
