Aaron Beattie - Crop Development Centre, University of Saskatchewan
Aaron Beattie Crop Development Centre, University of Saskatchewan Aaron Beattie was raised in Saskatchewan before moving to Ontario where he received his Bachelor of Science from the University of Waterloo and Masters of Science in plant breeding from the University of Guelph. Beattie later returned to Saskatoon to attend the University of Saskatchewan where he received his PhD in barley pathology. Beattie has worked in plant breeding and research for over 15 years and since 2006 he has worked with the Crop Development Centre (CDC) at the University of Saskatchewan. Currently he is a barley breeder with CDC, where he studies the breeding of malt, feed, hulless and forage barley varieties for Canadian producers. Beattie sits on multiple committeesâ€"including, the Prairie Recommending Committee for Oat and Barley, the barley technical advisory committee for the Western Grains Research Foundation and the Saskatchewan Advisory Council on Grain Crops where he is the barley trial coordinator.

"There are a number of higher beta-glucan barley varieties available in Canada," says Aaron Beattie, assistant professor, barley and oat breeding program, Crop Development Centre (CDC), University of Saskatchewan.
"These have all come from our breeding program here at the CDC. Older varieties like CDC Fibar (nine to ten per cent beta-glucan) and CDC Rattan (seven to eight per cent beta-glucan) are being replaced with newer varieties like CDC Marlina (seven to eight per cent beta-glucan) and HB13324 (seven to eight per cent beta-glucan)." According to Beattie, the CDC has mostly been focusing on improving the agronomics, mainly yield, but also the disease resistance package of each line due to a large yield penalty associated with the older high beta-glucan lines. Most of these varieties are available from seed growers in Western Canada, but HB13324 is relatively new so growers don't yet have access; however, the variety looks quite promising, yielding similar to the hulled varieties like AC Metcalfe, a familiar variety. There is also a category of hulless food barley which is high in beta-glucan (six to seven per cent), but is also high in amylose content (close to 40% instead of the usual 25%). The high amylose content is digested slower (like a resistant starch) and so would be good in diets for diabetics. "These varieties are mainly grown in Western Canada, but they are available to growers throughout Canada," says Beattie.
