Operation News
  • Our Stronghold performed very good this year. This durum looks like it is going to be a great fit for Alberta, it was our top yielding variety, plus it has Sawfly resistance.
  • It took us a while, but we finally received new forage varieties from Australia. A new Triticale, Oat, and Barley. Too late for seeding this year, but we will be ready for next year.
  • CDC Inca Peas, Daniello Hybrid Fall Rye, Proclaim Lentils and Morgan Oats were added to our variety list as well.
  • We purchased a KSI Mobile Seed Treater.
  • It was the first year that we seeded with our new Bourgault Disk Drill, and we are looking forward to seed with it for years to come.

AAC Grainland   (CWAD Durum)New Product

We will post the technical specifications for the AAC Grainland as soon as we received it.

Stands well, yields well, small seed means lower seeding rate. Strong seed coat. It is a taller variety which makes it easier to harvest in dry years. Taller variety also means more biomass returned to the soil for the next year.
