This study was conducted to examine the roles of institutions for malt-barely production by farmers in Wegera district of North Gondar, Ethiopia. A structured interview schedule was used to interview 120 farmers selected from two Kebeles through systematic random sampling method and focused group discussions to describe results. The collected data were analyzed using descriptive tools such as percentage, mean and standard deviation. Binary Logistic regression model was used to examine factors that determine the use of malt-barley technology. Results from the study showed that the roles of different institutions facilitated in access to new malt-barely seeds. Training and access to improved seed varieties are the main factors that had positive effects on the probability of participating in malt-barley production. To improve the roles of institutions in malt-barley production, the study suggested integrated seed system, efficient institutional linkage, effective extension service and skill training.
