Barley swathed within a moisture range of 51 to 31% was not significantly lower in protein content or germination potential, as compared with standing grain in these tests. However, yield reductions occurred at all cuttings within this range. Grain quality was related to the moisture content at which the crop was swathed. Results of moisture determinations based on whole-head samples agreed closely with results obtained on a kernel basis.
