Brewers Association (BA) technical committee has published best practice guidance Managing Malting Barley and Grains Supply Chain Quality, intended to increase understanding, scrutiny and accountability at all levels of the North American malting barley, wheat and grains supply chain.

The technical committee chose to act following the publication in late February 2016 of media attention following a report that residual amounts of the herbicide glyphosate were found in a number of German beers. The amount of glyphosate detected was low (the estimated intake for an adult was more than 1000 times lower than the currently estimated amount that can be ingested daily).
