What’s New in the Field in 2024 - CANTERRA SEEDS Experimentals

As we step into Plant ‘24, CANTERRA SEEDS continues its commitment to farmers by offering high-yielding canola hybrids and pedigreed varieties that thrive in our diverse environmental conditions. Our 2024 Experimentals will be tested throughout Western Canada so that we can ensure to continue to offer the very best in seed.  


Our focus remains on providing you canola hybrids with the best agronomic mix, combining yield potential, disease resistance, and straight-cut options. 

Part of our commitment to ensuring we are bringing the best options to farmers is testing new hybrids on a large scale across different environments throughout Western Canada and the US. Thanks to our farmer customers and retail partners, we have over 100 trials planned for 2024. These trials allow our customers and our team to evaluate and get to know potential new hybrids (and current ones) in their local geographies.

CANTERRA SEEDS is excited to test five new LibertyLink® experimental canola hybrids this season with plans to launch the top performing hybrid(s) in time for Spring 2025.

Cereals, Pulses and Specialty Products

CANTERRA SEEDS has included 13 experimental pedigreed products (EXPs) for 2024, covering wheat, lentils, white oats, spring triticale and canary seed. These EXPs are either newly licensed varieties awaiting official naming, or varieties that CANTERRA SEEDS is trialling for potential future acquirement.

During the 2024 Prairie Grain Development Committee (PGDC) meetings, both Limagrain Cereals Research Canada (LCRC) and the Limagrain Cereal Seeds/Saskatchewan Pulse Grower partnership made significant strides, garnering support for over a dozen varieties of wheat and pulses. Specifically, their efforts resulted in the approval of 7 wheat, 5 lentil, and 1 yellow pea varieties. CANTERRA SEEDS' ongoing partnership with LCRC and interest in pulses allow for acquirement of top-quality products coming from these programs and we have included some of them in this year's trialling program.
