January 2010

Dear Friend:

We have the following varieties of seed available at this time. If you are interested in other varieties, we can usually direct you to a supply or else bring some in to our yard for you to pick up here.

* WHEAT

AC® KANE - This is a new variety for sale this spring. It has one of the same parents as Superb and it looks very similar in the field. Improved kernel quality, especially sprout resistance, is its main advantage. Yield and lodging resistance appear to be similar to Superb.
For more information: AC® KANE Technical Bulletin [PDF format]

GLENN - An exciting new variety for 2010. It was recommended for registration mostly on account of it's tolerance to fusarium head blight in Manitoba. It stands very well and has excellent kernel quality, with very high bushel weight, good color and good protein.

* DURUM

AC® STRONGFIELD Very good yields, good lodging resistance, large kernel size and very good shatter resistance make this an excellent durum variety.

* PEAS

  • CDC GOLDEN yellow pea: This variety has everything going for it. It stands well, yields well, has powdery mildew resistance, medium size seed and strong seed coat.

  • CDC MEADOW yellow pea: New variety last year that performed very well! It stands slightly better that CDC Golden and flowers a few days earlier to beat the July heat.

  • CDC SAGE green pea: This variety has the best rating for standability for a green pea and is resistant to powdery mildew. It also has a good rating for seed coat breakage and resistance to bleaching. No royalties on this variety either!

* SEED TREATMENT


We have a modern seed treating system to treat your wheat or pea seed.

* FORAGE SEEDS

We are dealers for Brett-Young Seeds, who sell all sorts of grasses and legumes including AURORA Timothy and HYBRIFORCE-400 hybrid alfalfa. They will custom blend any order to your needs.

* INOCULANTS: Becker Underwood and Novozymes

We sell nitrogen inoculants for all pulse crops and legumes as well as phosphate inoculants for almost every crop. If you order in January, we can get you some excellent prices, and you won't have to pay until May.
