The protest had barred the unloading of a barley ship at the Port of Stockton after the grain dealer announced that it has no immediate plans for future imports. The American Agriculture Movement claimed that Continental Grain Co. agreed not to import any more barley or handle any commodity at American ports unless the price meets the cost of domestic production. The dispute began 11 days ago when longshoremen at the port honored farm pickets against unloading the ship from New Zealand.

A thousand years ago, Middle Eastern cooks used a condiment called murri made from doughnut-shaped loaves of rotted barley. The Food section, ever unwilling to pass up a new (or old) taste sensation, is rotting some barley according to the ancient instructions, and we will keep you up to date on how it does, what it tastes like and exactly how dangerous it would be to eat. Now, apparently nobody has made murri for about 600 years, so this is a little experimental.

The Jewish holiday Shavuot marks the onset of the wheat harvest, as well as the gathering of the season's first fruits. In ancient lore, harvests included wheat, barley, grapes, figs, honey and olives. It is also traditional to serve milk, eggs and cheese that were often encased in doughs, in dishes such as kreplach and blintzes. This year, Shavuot, which also marks an important religious event--the receiving of the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai--will be celebrated next Thursday.

Taiwan will send five missions to the United States between August and early 1990 to buy American products worth about $1.5 billion to help narrow the trade gap between the two countries, officials said today. Chang Chung-chien, vice economic minister, told reporters that an agricultural team will leave in August to buy about 600,000 tons of wheat and 50,000 tons of barley. This will be followed by an industrial group that will buy machinery and equipment for power stations, oil refineries, petrochemical plants and telecommunications networks.
