Larry Hollifield’s agricultural roots run deep in Idaho. He grew up on an Idaho family farm and has been farming 5,000 acres for two decades near Hansen in the state’s southern region, growing barley, corn, wheat and other crops. In 2020, he took what he says was a smart step in his farming business. He began participating in Scoular’s Barley MVP program.
While Idaho is the top-producing barley state, only a small percentage of the barley grown in Idaho finds its way into the fast-growing feed, food, and processing sectors. By participating in Barley MVP, farmers like Hollifield can help to meet this demand by incorporating barley into their crop rotation.
