Among the varieties in our portfolio, Laureate and Planet are the most rewarding varieties for autumn sowing due to their late emergence, while Malz, Concerto and Traveler are recommended for spring sowing in weaker soil. One of the most important quality parameter for malting barley is a minimum germination capacity of 96%. The general requirement of the brewing industry is that the protein content in malt should be around 10%.
