Farmers in Western Canada will now access the Pride Seeds portfolio of hybrid corn, soybean seeds, and agronomic resources only through the Canterra Seeds retailer network in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta, the company says.
This partnership will allow Canterra to expand its line of silage corn hybrids, grain corn hybrids, and soybeans.
To effectively take advantage of earlier-maturing seed corn hybrids and soybean varieties, Canterra and Pride both recognize how crucial it is for farmers to have access to seed with a demonstrated record of success growing under Prairie conditions.
Pride conducts annual WATCH Trials (Western Advanced Testing & Commercialization Hub) in partnership with farmers across the Prairies. These trials put corn hybrids through their paces in the Western Canadian environment, generating accurate performance results based on actual farming practices and growing conditions to help farmers make informed purchasing decisions.
“The continued growth of corn and soybeans in Western Canada, and the demand from our customers for the best genetics and performance to fuel that growth, is the reason Canterra Seeds originally partnered with Pride Seeds three years ago,” says Canterra CEO Dave Hansen. “I believe this new relationship shows that we have proven ourselves to each other, and our customers.”
