Welcome to MSU's Variety Dictionary


Coming Soon! Variety Selection Tool!

This tool will allow you to review both agronomic and malting data of varieties we test in our Intrastate and Off-station trials, sorting by variety, location, year and more!


In this section of the site we strive to offer useful information about malt varieties commonly grown in the region. We hope that this resource may be informative for those in the Craft industry including farmers, maltsters, brewers and distillers as they determine what variety or varieties would be best for their needs.
