I think the photo above is barley or maybe wheat? “Cache County is one of the primary agricultural production regions in the state. In 2003 county production statistics (2004 Utah Agricultural Statistics), it led the state in barley production” with 873,500 bu total acres harvested according to USU Economics Department.
“Barley is a cereal grain derived from the annual grass Hordeum vulgare. It serves as a major animal feed crop, with smaller amounts used for malting (in beer and whisky) and in health food. In 2007 ranking of cereal crops in the world, barley was fourth both in terms of quantity produced (136 million tons) and in area of cultivation (566,000 kmĀ²)” Quoted From Barley on Wikipedia.com Photo by David Densley July 2009 near Weston Idaho.
