Seed Ideas 2022
Sales of HRSW has picked up recently, Durum sales seem up slightly and some forecasts indicate more acres.
Barley sales seems the slow one this spring, maybe it was the heat/drought impact on that crop last year that has people avoiding it.
GP/Soft wheats (AAC Paramount VB / AAC Awesome VB) soft wheat seems slow considering how tight the feed wheat spread is to HRSW with a large yield bump vs HRSW.
On barley if you are in a medium to higher moisture area we have two European style 2 row barleys that can significantly out yield normal barley varieties and also have better standability with shorter straw.
Sirish - a malt on the AFSC list, can push it with fertility, stands well.
Esma - yields very well with equal management to traditional varieties.
Flax sales have been strong and acres of brown and yellow will be up.
Mustard sales of all types have been strong.
Corn sales are up this season after some strong results last year with Thunder Seed varieties.
Oat acres will be up this season, and oat seed for forage or cover crops, double crops will be short as seed supplies across the prairies were very low.
Many people are using barley this spring as a cover before seeding specialty crops as it can tolerate edge herbicide. I have a few very nice seed lots for cover crop barley. If you do need some double cropping forage options do book early as many seed lots will not be as available as normal.
