Scientific Digest

Relationship between malt qualities and ß-amylase activity and protein content as affected by timing of nitrogen fertilizer application
CHENCHEN Jin-xin, DAI Fei, WEI Kang, ZHANG Guo-ping (Department of Agronomy, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou 310029, China)

Abstract: The effects of different timing of N fertilizer application at the same rate on grain ß-amylase activity, protein concentration, weight and malt quality of barley were studied. Grain ß-amylase activity and protein concentration were significantly higher in treatments where all top-dressed N fertilizer was applied at booting stage only or equally applied at two-leaf stage and booting stage than in the treatment where all top-dressed N fertilizer was applied at two-leaf age stage only. On the other hand, grain weight and malt extract decreased with increased N application at booting stage. There were obvious differences between barley varieties and experimental years in the grain and malt quality response to the timing of N fertilizer application. It was found that grain protein concentration was significantly and positively correlated with ß-amylase activity, but significantly and negatively correlated with malt extract and Kolbach index. The effect of grain protein concentration on malt quality was predominant over the effect of grain ß-amylase activity. Journal of Zhejiang University SCIENCE B
