Özet

Two two-rowed barley cultivars, Tokak and Clerine, were irradiated at two different dose ranges (0.05-0.75 kGy and 0.5-5.0 kGy) using a Co-60 source. Irradiation of barley at the medium levels before malting had detrimental effects on most of the malt quality criteria. The detrimental effects of irradiation was lower at doses up to 0.25 kGy. Irradiation of malt samples caused either slight or no deterioration of quality characteristics.
