barley dryers and roasters

Barley is a cereal whose plant belongs to the family of Gramineae and has the scientific name of Hordeum vulgare. Known since ancient times, this plant spread from the Middle East, a land where it was cultivated since the seventh millennium BC. As a crop, barley has no particular needs for its development: it tolerates high temperatures and lack of water, thanks also to a growth cycle shorter than other cereals. It is no coincidence, in fact, that barley grows anywhere in the world, a feature that makes it quite unique.

 

Barley is characterized by a great ability to adapt to the surrounding environment, managing to change its life cycle according to it. Its cultivation is widespread in Italy and throughout the Mediterranean area, but it does not fail to be present also in the rest of Europe and the world. Barley is used for human and animal nutrition , as well as to produce beer and whiskey. For these purposes, the BIO lines are optimal for a delicacy of treatment and to best preserve all the organoleptic properties of the beans.
