Thank you spellman for support and encouragement, very appreciated!
My starting point as DIY and technology enthusiast was little bit different: build an all in one fully automated micro malt house (see the initial part of the post)
Then in order to experiment the manual malting process I was looking for some row barley and I realize that is almost impossible to find few kg of 2row virgin barley... So I decide to produce by myself..even more challenging and exiting.
I have studied a lot the basic of barley growing and I got some good suggestion from local professional farmers but nevertheless the harvest result is poor..very poor and I'm frustrated by this and not sure next year I will try again.
For sure I have done some mistakes in growing and doing everything manually complicate the story but there is something I still don't know how to fix. I'm referring to herbicide usage...it seems mandatory if you don't want your barley destroyed by zizzania but I want to be organic as much as possible
Does anyone have experience in organic barley growth ?
Any natural treatment to prevent such a huge amount of grass?
Now I try to get at the end of this adventure than I go back to the initial project scope: the micro map house
