PRIDE Seeds and CANTERRA Seeds Reach Distribution Agreement for Western Canada

PRIDE Seeds and CANTERRA Seeds have announced a distribution agreement that brings the PRIDE Seeds portfolio of hybrid seed corn and soybean seed to CANTERRA Seeds dealers across Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta.

Stephen Denys, vice president of sales and marketing with PRIDE Seeds, says that research into earlier maturing seed corn hybrids and soybean varieties translates to huge acreage growth in these crops across the prairie provinces.

“This agreement furthers our commitment to provide our customers with a full product line, beyond canola and cereals, that now includes seed corn and soybean seed,” says David Hansen, president and CEO of CANTERRA Seeds.

PRIDE Seeds is part of AgReliant Genetics, one of the largest seed businesses in Canada.

This announcement is the third significant one made by CANTERRA Seeds in the last week, as a joint venture with Limagrain was announced last week in Saskatoon (story here), and a wheat breeding partnership with the Alberta Wheat Commission and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada was announced earlier this week (story here).
