The new CWRS from CANTERRA SEEDS has been added to Warburtons IP Program for the 2018 growing season on a market development basis.
AAC Cameron VB is a new, high yielding CWRS with resistance to the orange blossom wheat midge. It is higher yielding than Unity VB, with a significantly better lodging resistance. It has also been shown to have the lowest levels of FHB among CWRS vareities tested by Manitoba Agriculture.
Adam Dyck, Program Manager with Warburton Foods Ltd. Canada shared:
Warburtons is excited to add AAC Cameron VB to the Warburtons IP Program for the 2018 growing season. AAC Cameron VB has shown great baking performance over the last number of years. With AAC Cameron VB being midge tolerant and having best in class DON accumulation scores, it should allow our growers to meet contract specifications more consistently.
Being its first year in the program, we will have minimal contracted acres of AAC Cameron VB (~ 15,000 acres in Western MB and Eastern Saskatchewan). With a strong performance in the field and in our bakeries, contracted acres should rise next year. Warburtons production contract details will be coming out in the upcoming weeks with Richardson Pioneer and Paterson Grain.
Supply of AAC Cameron VB is expected to move quickly. Don't wait to book your 2018 seed.
