Our past events they are posted here.
CDC Dorado Yellow Flax
CDC Dorado is a newer Yellow or Golden Flax variety with top yields and good standability. We find it yields like a Brown, stands as good or better and matures earlier than expected. It has high ALA oil content wanted buy some buyers, a large seed size, and a nice golden seed look.
Last season we were in the mid 60 bu range with this variety but we usually budget on 45-50 bu.
XPT Grain (contracting in all areas of the prairies) is contracting this yellow flax. Chris with XPT: Cell: +1-306-209-7746, Email: email@example.com
Other buyers are also able to buy or contract this top yellow variety.
AAC Marvelous Brown Flax
AAC Marvelous is a new brown variety with top yields and good standability. It also has high oil content desired by some buyers. 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.
