Barley is an important rabi crop. For human consumption, it is largely consumed by the poor classes either as flour for chapati making, pure or mixed with wheat or gram flour or as parched grains to make sattu. In Bihar and West Bengal, the poor as a staple food consume dehusked barley. In Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan, mixed flour of barley, gram and wheat is used for making `missi roti’. However, almost 60 percent of the total barley produced in India is consumed as cattle feed. Barley is also used in the manufacture of malt and beer, ayurvedic medicine, cocoa-malt drinks and baby foods. With the coming up of many new breweries, after the liberalized licensing policy, the share of barley in the production of malt for the manufacture of beer is expected to rise. Varsha Industries Pvt Ltd provides the best export quality barley in India and supplies all over the world.
