Company’s seed production unaffected by delayed Prairie Harvest
For Immediate release
November 5, 2018 – Winnipeg, MB - CANTERRA SEEDS is ensuring growers of the quality and consistency of its 2019 canola seed supply in light of recent concerns surrounding the delayed harvest across the Prairies. Growers can rest assured that their preferred CANTERRA SEEDS canola products, including the high-yielding clubroot resistant CS2000, will be available for seeding in 2019.
“With growers experiencing a delayed harvest, so too are many seed companies,” said David Hansen, President and CEO of CANTERRA SEEDS. “CANTERRA SEEDS has been fortunate to harvest all canola seed production earlier this year and can ensure growers that we will continue to offer a quality, consistent supply of seed for 2019.”
CANTERRA SEEDS has harvested all canola seeded across western Canada for seed production, taking off over 90% of seed by the first week of September. Quality is anticipated to be very high, in line with the company’s quality assurance policy. Interested growers are encouraged to speak with their CANTERRA SEEDS representative to learn more about the company’s seed quality standards.
This year’s CANTERRA SEEDS canola lineup is as strong as ever, featuring:
- CS2000 – a unique clubroot resistant hybrid canola with no yield drag.
- CS2100 – a blackleg resistant hybrid with high pod-shatter tolerance for straight-cutting; and
- CS2300 – a canola hybrid that sets a new standard for yield and standability.
“CANTERRA SEEDS recognizes the challenges growers are facing across the prairies with finishing this year’s harvest,” added Hansen. “We want to wish them well as they finish off 2018 and assure them that our full portfolio of hybrids will be available as they make decisions for next year.”
