LCS Genie

The Genie Is in the Bottle

LCS Genie is quickly becoming a preferred spring 2-Row option for all malt styles of beer across the US. With a malting profile tailored for the craft industry and yield levels that compete with feed barley’s, LCS Genie was recently added to the AMBA list of recommended varieties. LCS Genie has naturally lower levels of protein, offering farmers utilizing high input management strategies an opportunity to push yields while still landing safely within contract specifications.
