It's getting closer to spring and final decisions are being made on crop choice. We have had a run on flax seed recently as farmers adjust their plans. Below we have some new crop options on oats ($4.00+ picked up per bu!), lentils, mustard, peas and more as well as our next event on FHB timing, new PGR's, and fungicides.

New Crop Bids
Kris Moric from Johnstons Grain has new crop bids for the crops below that we have seed for. email@example.com , www.johnstonsgrain.com or call Kris at 844-324-7778
Large Green Lentils:
Green Lentils have more risk to grow but also more potential market upside. The new CDC Lima CL Large Green Lentil fits this and is the top CL Large Green Lentil in the market with similar grade retention, yield, and look as other large greens but with the CL chemistry to help with weed control.
Small Red Lentil:
CDC Proclaim CL is the best red lentil in Alberta so if you are not growing it you are missing out on 200 lbs per acre! Details here: http://www.stampseeds.com/lentil---proclaim-cl.html
CDC Arborg is the newest and best Milling Oat for yield and % plump and available now.
Kris is contracting (as of Friday last week so subject to change)
CDC Arborg oat variety as the main choice at $4.00 to $4.30 per bu depending on delivery period picked up within 125 km of Coaldale or Carsland based on #2. I am sure other areas work similarly so please contact him. Thats a really good price for new crop oats!

AAC Delhi Jumbo Yellow Pea
AAC Delhi is a brand new Jumbo Yellow Pea. It has yielded very similar to our ACC Chrome Pea but has higher protein. It stands equal or better vs CDC Meadow, and matures early like CDC Meadow. Delhi has large seed size and good seed coat breakage for a large pea.
Delhi is exclusive to XPT Grain.
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 compared to most brown flax varieties. It has high ALA oil content, 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. Price on yellow flax can be slightly more vs brown flax.
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.
New To Flax?
We have a one pager on how we grow flax that we send with seed shipments.
