CS2000 Compared to L241C

Posted by CANTERRA SEEDS on Oct 9, '18

Recently, InVigor canola sent a marketing piece to farmers in Western Canada. It looked like this:

Inside there are summaries of their Demonstration Strip Trial (DST) trials from 2017, including comparisons of CS2000, the clubroot resistant hybrid from CANTERRA SEEDS.

It's not surprising that BASF sees CS2000 as the hybrid to beat. It's been a top product in the clubroot region of Alberta since its launch. The combination of yield, maturity and unique disease resistance simply cannot be beat. 

But when we take a closer look at the yield data they included, we are concerned about the way CS2000 is being represented.

Wheat Standability in the Snow

Posted by Cosmin Badea on Sep 17, '18

Last week the Peace Region received an early dump of snow. Much of the crop is still in the field to be harvested.

Amidst the snow, an interesting result that was observed by Jesse Meyer, our Peace Region Territory Manager, was the standability of AAC Connery.

Compared to the other varieties on his farm, AAC Connery stood up the best, and was largely unaffected by the snow. This will allow farmers to get back in the field sooner, and will also help with grade retention.

The Importance of the Canola Performance Trials (CPT)

Posted by Shaan Tsai on Dec 18, '17

What are the Canola Performance Trials?

The CPT or Canola Performance Trials are a grower-funded, third-party testing initiative that’s regarded as one of the best sources for unbiased data on the most popular canola varieties on the market. The CPTs have been published for many years, and growers have made it known that they value this type of data and would like it to continue. In a 2015 survey, 90% of respondents said data from an independent third-party source was either somewhat or very important to them.

PRIDE Seeds Tops Competitors in Grazing Trial

Posted by CANTERRA SEEDS on Apr 21, '17

Grazing trials can be tough, so we're pleased to receive these third party results.

Grazing trials can be tough to do. Typically, these trials rely on anecdotal evidence to measure the performance of each corn hybrid, as opposed to scientific measurement. Statements like “the cows seem to like this one better,” or “they fed off this one longer,” are difficult to quantify. While we value all trials and the cooperators that run them, getting systematic, third party results helps verify the strength of the PRIDE Seeds products.
