"Our approach to the release of FlagshipTM is focused on having the variety accepted by the international and domestic markets over the next 18 months, so that when the first crops of FlagshipTM are harvested in 2007 the demand will be firmly established," ABB's Executive Manager of Corporate Affairs, Maggie Dowling, said.
"The market development strategies will include ABB
(and its malting division Joe White Maltings), BBM and IMC
co-ordinating the export of container loads of malting barley and malt to international customers in 2006 and 2007." Ms Dowling
said preliminary indications from international markets for FlagshipTM were "very good".
