The paper presents technical information regarding barley varieties experimentally cultivated in Romania for brewing and their malting behaviour. The studied varieties are cultivated in the main research stations of Romania, the results being representative for all Romanian territory.

There were studied 67 barley samples to establish the qualitative parameters of the barley in order to select the best malting varieties. There were selected ten foreign varieties in order to be adapted to the specific Romanian conditions and 10 Romanian varieties. There are presented data regarding physical-chemical and technological quality of barley and corresponding malt from 2004 harvest. Data registered for malt samples are obtained by malting experiments performed in the malting pilot plant. On the base of results of this research only the suitable varieties can be cultivated, accordingly with the specific conditions of soil and climate for Romania. As result of this research we assess that Romania has European competitive malting barley varieties.
