The North East is a prime barley producing region. The light soils, near to the coast produce high yielding crops of barley low in protien and with the potential to be ideally suited for use in the brewing and distilling sectors. With this in mind, Loughran’s Stores offers growers the opportunity to produce this premium crop for use by Boortmalt Ireland.
In the past, it was thought that the best way to achieve the low proteins required for malting was through sacrificing yield. With modern varieties and new research this is no longer the case, and we now know that the best way to achieve the required protien levels is through high yields.
