New is a grazing corn for shorter to medium season areas TH4076RR with slow dry down and great digestibility.
Grain - TH4072 RR is 2025 CHU grain type with big cobs and fast dry down - could be used as a silage in short season zones - New! - Short Supply
Grain - TH6875 VT2P is a 2100 CHU proven top yielding variety
Grain - TH6977 VT2P 2175 CHU medium height, yield stable variety with top yields.
Silage - TH 4126 RR - 2250 CHU - flint, big volume
Silage - New: TH 6180 VT2P - 2300 CHU - flint dent, top yields - New!
Grazing - TH4076 HDRR: 2150 CHU, high digestibility, slower dry down, full dent - New!
Grazing - TH 4188 RR - 2675 CHU - long season, good palatability
Let me know if you would like to try some of these on your farm.
Other CHU's also available
CL & RR Canola Seed
We have pricing available on CL & RR canola from BrettYoung let me know if you would like pricing as there are some early pay discounts.
In my opinion, the top CL for our area is the 5125 CL as its yield is the best for the CL segment. It is a swathing type.
For RR canola I like the 6090RR or the 6204TF (RR) if you want a TrueFlex RR canola
Clean Seed On Hand & Ready To Ship:
We have Chrome & Delhi Peas, FB 9-4, Fabelle, DL Rico & Snowbrid Faba beans, Redberry & LeRoy Wheat cleaned and ready to pickup if needed. Next on the list is Sunray spring triticale.
Let me know if you have any questions firstname.lastname@example.org or 403-634-1586, call or text.
We are growing midge tolerant varieties mainly because they are good varieties, not because we have midge in our area. It seems like the top new varieties are midge tolerant..
LeRoy VB - New! Stands better vs Brandon, about 1"+ taller vs Brandon, MR for FHB, Protein = to checks, Midge resistance
Wheatland VB - New! Stands better vs Brandon, equal height to Brandon, I Rating for FHB, Protein = to checks, midge resistance
RedNet - New! Highest falling number in registration trials, taller (lodging risk), MR for FHB, lowest DON (FHB) accumulation, high protein
Redberry - Early by 2+ days vs others, High protein, some lodging risk (although was equal Brandon in our trials) MR for FHB
Viewfield - Susceptible to Bacterial Streaming in some areas, high yields, I for FHB, stands and height like Brandon
Landmark VB - Stands the best, I for FHB, midge resistance
Brandon - Industry standard - similar to AAC Elie
Alloy - Top selling durum, some drought tolerance, Strongfield/Brigade are parents, customers with yields over spitfire and other types, MS Rating for FHB
Succeed VB - Stands well, early maturity, midge tolerance, large seed size, MS rating for FHB
Grainland - New! Not in our trial, top solid stem durum for sawfly = Dryland fit
Precision - Industry standard
