Why Should I Buy? The Canola Seed Edition

Ah, October — when farmers’ thoughts turn to fall field work, turkey dinners and canola seed.  2012 was a tough year for the oilseed, there’s no doubt, but a difficult growing season can really highlight the strengths and weaknesses in your canola seed genetics.

See below for each company’s plug for why you should consider Nexera, Canterra Seeds and Dekalb varieties for 2013.
