Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) is widely known for their nutritional values. The main approach of the research work is to study their agronomical characteristics present in the different barley grains collected from different parts of the Rajasthan and Haryana province. The analysis of macro and micro-nutrients present in the barley grain shows the presence of the high concentration of Sodium (Na) and Potassium (K) (942.028 ppm and 5286.667 ppm respectively) with respect to soil Sodium (Na) and Potassium (K) (261.50 ppm and 2360.00 ppm respectively) collected separately from Rajasthan and Haryana, whereas concentration of Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg) and Iron (Fe) are lesser (624.139 ppm, 1141.421 ppm, and 1287.686 ppm respectively) with respect to soil (2267.00 ppm, 4383.00 ppm and 15678.00 ppm respectively).These results were analyzed at Arbro Pharmaceuticals Limited; Delhi using inductively coupled plasma mass-spectrometer (ICP-MS) and Atomic absorption spectrometer-hydride generation (AAS-HG) by Fare lab, Gurgaon, Haryana, India .The results may be useful in the food nutritional chemistry for animal feed, human consumption and for Agro industry.
