Order Seed Now to Avoid Supply Issues, SeCan Says in New Webinar

As water and nutrient efficiencies become paramount, the need for innovation will only be compounded.

2021 was a challenging year. Fortunately, SeCan member grower/retailers did what they do best — growing and processing seed locally for their customers. SeCan has a host of new options for 2022. In this webinar we cover:

  • ‚ÄãWhat’s new in a variety of crop types
  • Possible challenges and things to watch out for in the new year

Among the advice given in terms of ordering seed for 2022, SeCan’s Mira van Burck advises that the newest varieties will typically be in the lowest supply so book now as a lot are already sold out. In Manitoba especially:

  • Peas are very tight, at least the higher protein varieties
  • Oat seed is tight for the newer varieties. Some seed growers already in a sold out position
  • Flax is tight or sold out, depending on the location
  • Feed barley continues to be tight unless your local retailer is holding a bunch for your area
