Amazing statistics. Due to the climate though, the more hardy Barley represents 62 per cent of total cereals which mainly goes to making Whisky and Beer. Wheat is at 23 per cent much of which with other cereals and crops end up as Vodka and Gin: of which the bulk (80 per cent) of UK production is also Scotland.
-I suppose it's the "value added" argument....hic!
Actually I'd love to get my hands on some Barley flour: I have an idea it would make superbly tasty bread.
