And we are now excited about what this new agreement will mean for the growers and retail organizations who choose to do business with BrettYoung going forward. Our ability to deliver consistent performance leadership to canola growers in the BrettYoung brand just got that much stronger.”

These are two world-class, family and farmer-owned companies who have provided real choice to the market for decades. This agreement allows us to continue doing what we do best at DL Seeds, breed world-class canola varieties that compete with the best from our multi-national competitors. BrettYoung will have first choice of DL Seeds’ new canola hybrids which will consistently deliver the yield performance and traits to the BrettYoung brand that today’s growers are looking for.”
