Maizex Seeds has announced the launch of four new soybean varieties to be sold in Western Canada exclusively through Maizex Seeds certified dealers.
“The launch of these four new varieties represents a new performance level option for soybean producers,” says Stephen Denys, director of market and product development with Maizex Seeds. “Developed through our proven soybean research and development program, all four meet the evolving needs of soybean producers in Manitoba and Saskatchewan across a maturity range from 000.6 RM (2175CHU) to 00.6 RM (2425 CHU).”
Denys notes the Maizex-exclusive Elite varieties complement the full portfolio of Maizex grain, silage, and grazing corn hybrids sold by the Maizex network today. “These varieties also complement the Elite soybean varieties currently sold by BrettYoung Seeds through their distribution channels,” adds Denys.
Jeremy Visser, soybean product development manager with Maizex Seeds, points out that the new Elite offering combines outstanding yield potential with key agronomic traits for performance.
“These varieties have been developed and have been tested locally to meet the needs of Prairie soybean producers in areas including harvestability and disease tolerance. Our confidence level in their performance is extremely high,” he says.
