Post written April 14th 2020
We have been able to seed one field of DL Rico Faba beans last week on Thursday. Hoping to start again on peas this week as we had about 2" of snow on Friday night. Seed treating and shipping has been steady, the biggest concern has been maintaining the 6' buffer between ourselves & yourselves or your employees to help reduce the risk of spread.
Below I will talk about new crop yellow flax opportunities, in addition to a few new varieties available.
Nothing is more important than the well-being of our staff and the customers we serve. We are still open for seed pickup but our office & scale house are now closed during seed pickup due to COVID-19 effective immediately. Please pass along to your staff who will be picking up seed or custom truckers.
Yellow Flax - New Crop Contracts
AAC Bright is a variety that is light & bright in looks and also stands well.
CDC Dorado is an early season, high ALA oil content variety.
