Glenn Wheat to Be Retired From Warburtons Program After 2017

The 2017 growing season will be the last year for Glenn in the Warburtons IP program.

“After consuming ~250,000MTs of Glenn in our bakeries, we will no longer be contracting the variety in our program. Glenn will continue to be a CWRS option for growers outside of our program,” the company said in a statement earlier this week.

Glenn was a groundbreaking variety when it was registered in Canada by Canterra Seeds in 2009 after several years of being a very successful variety south of the border. It has been a very important variety for the Warburtons program for the past 5 growing seasons.

“It has provided our growers with excellent yields, the best grades and strong returns while giving our bread the consistency and quality we’ve required. Through our on-going research at CIGI, we continually look at new varieties and review what we currently have in the program.”

“We would like to thank Canterra Seeds and their seed growers for the excellent level of service in supplying seed for our program.”
– Adam Dyck, Warburtons Canadian Program Manager

In recent years, with the additions of AAC W1876, CDC Plentiful, AAC Brandon, AAC Elie and Prosper, we have a pack of varieties that are raising the bar both in the bakery and in the field.

“Warburtons puts a lot of resources into revamping our program in order to improve our program every single year. Only Glenn remains in our program from the 2014 growing season. All of our varieties (minus Glenn) are in the Growth to Mature phase of their product lifecycle.”
