- AAC Connect is a hulled two-row spring malting barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) cultivar widely adapted to western Canada. Developed from the cross TR04282/BM9831D-229 made in 2004, AAC Connect was evaluated in the Western Cooperative Two-Row Barley Registration Test (2012–2013) and the Collaborative Malting Barley Trials (2013–2014) conducted by the malting and brewing industry before being registered in 2016. AAC Connect has a desirable combination of agronomic, malting quality, and disease-resistance traits including lower deoxynivalenol accumulation.
