Last week our Malt Barley School went well with about 29 participants learning about the Bill Coors 100 variety and contracts available. The new crop price looks good vs other cereals.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Cody Shick at 406-697-3838 if you are interested in Bill Coors 100 Malt Barley.
At the present time the contracts are only for Southern Alberta on irrigation.

CDC Proclaim Small Red Lentil
If you are not growing CDC Proclaim small red lentil you are missing out! Yields of 200 lbs per ac over any other red variety in Alberta vs other reds. I have noticed new crop prices of .24-.25 cents per lb (new crop price).
We also have a new Large Green Lentil called CDC Lima.
New To Lentils?
Pick your cleanest field to get started on. We have a one pager on how we grow lentils that we send with seed shipments.
AAC Marvelous Brown Flax
AAC Marvelous is a new brown variety with top yields and good standability. We stopped growing our other varieties once we had grown this one for a few seasons. Last season we were in the mid 60 bu range with this variety but we usually budget on 45-50 bu.
Also don't forget about out equally high yielding and early early maturing yellow CDC Dorado with new crop contracts from Xpt Grain.
