Strengthen your legacy

LCS Link was bred in collaboration with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, resulting in a variety with excellent straw strength and winter-hardiness. This hard red winter wheat (HRWW) showed a strong adaptation to the I-70 corridor and north last year, and its range has been extended south this year. LCS Link is a top choice for under irrigation.
