LG Diablo is one of the highest yielding spring barleys on the AHDB Recommended List and has outperformed other leading varieties by a significant amount, especially in the key malting barley growing areas of the East and North regions.
It is medium in height, similar to RGT Planet with a strong agronomic profile. LG Diablo also has a very good disease resistance package reflected by having the highest untreated yield on the AHDB Recommended List.
LG Diablo has very good physical grain quality with a high hot water extract, a trait heavily desired by the end user. It also has low grain nitrogen and a specific weight better than Laureate. The variety has been given Full Approval for Malt Distilling and Provisional Approval 2 for Brewing by the Malting Barley Committee (MBC), which is an interesting prospect for future growers and end users.
