SOYBEANS
With interest in producing soybeans in East Central Saskatchewan we have made arrangements with North Star Genetics to supply 2 of the earliest, small seed size Round Up Ready soybeans on the market. NSC Warren RR is 2375 heat units, 107 days to maturity in 2007. Great variety for solid seeding and with small seed size will keep seed costs down. Producers in Manitoba are finding for first time soybean growers that a dual application of granular inoculant applied in furrow plus a liquid or peat treatment on the seed provides the best source of inoculant to maximize nitrogen fixing. Soybeans are not like planting peas, they are not as forgiving for deep planting, cool soil temperatures, variable planting depth, etc. Manitoba producers have even delayed planting until the right temperature arrives in the day. Marketing is now readily available in Manitoba with pricing programs very similar to canola.
YELLOW MUSTARD
We have made arrangements with Besco Grain in Brunkild, Manitoba to provide their programming and contracts to anyone interested in marketing and/or contracting mustard. They have deferred seed pricing, on farm pickup, Act of God clauses, bonded by the CGC and can work with partial loads.
SEED TREATING
BioCoat Technologies is still providing us with a polymer coating and inoculant treating process for all pulse crops. This is a state of the art process which research has shown to provide the best live rhizobium count of all inoculant processes to date. Approximate cost is $4.00/bu including the inoculant. We can custom treat your seed or our seed before you take it home
