LCS Calypso

The Beginning of a Great Time

LCS Calypso is a follow up winter 2-Row release to LCS Violetta. With large quantities of Certified seed scheduled to be available for the first time in fall of 2017, malting companies across the eastern US and Central Plains are looking to contract the newest addition to our portfolio. LCS Calypso’s field performance has been driven by above average winter hardiness and a strong disease resistance package.
