DURUM WHEAT

AAC® Spitfire: New for 2017! 8% Higher yield than Strongfield and better standability

This new variety has similar characteristics to Strongfield with higher yield and more resistance to lodging.  More about AAC Spitfire.

 

AC® Transcend:Slightly higher yield than Strongfield and better fusarium resistance

AC Transcend yields like Strongfield but has a better disease resistance package including better fusarium resistance than Strongfield.  The seed samples we have seen have had beautiful color and plumpness.  More about Transcend Durum.

 

AC® Strongfield: Excellent high yielding Amber Durum with high protein and test weight attributes.

Strongfield has been extremely popular over the last few years in western Canada.


AAC® Raymore:  Solid stem with good quality attributes.

New on the scene, AAC Raymore is the first registered solid stem durum in Canada and we have had good reports about it's standability and seed quality.  More about AAC Raymore.


HARD RED SPRING WHEAT

AAC® Brandon - This semi-dwarf CWRS variety yields 5% higher than Carberry with similar lodging and fusarium resistance. 

We expect Brandon to replace Carberry as a top choice on irrigation with it's high yield, good quality package and good FHB resistance. 

 

AC® Muchmore - Dwarf HRSW with excellent yield and strong straw - our shortest variety

If you are looking for a HRSW that will yield among the highest varieties out there and at the same time has a excellent lodging resistance and the shortest height of any spring wheats available consider AC Muchmore.   This should be a great variety on irrigation for southern Alberta. Why we are excited about AC Muchmore - see our blog.

 

AC® Carberry: Moderate resistance to fusarium, nice quality seed and excellent straw strength.  

If you have been losing grade on HRSW or have been affected by Fusarium issues, then AC Carberry hard red spring wheat is an excellent variety to consider.  This new spring wheat has high yield potential, excellent disease resistance, short strong straw and great grain quality and protein. It has a "good" rating for fusarium and excellent lodging resistance.  If you are thinking of wheat on irrigation AC Carberry is a great choice.

 


PRAIRIE SPRING WHEAT

AAC® Penhold New for 2017 - It's been a long wait but we finally have a replacement for AC Foremost.

This new prairie spring wheat has high yield, strong straw and the best rating available for fusarium resistance. More about AAC Penhold.

 


SOFTWHEAT

AAC Chiffon:  Higher yield than AC Sadash and AC Andrew 

This new variety will yield higher than AC Andrew or AC Sadash.  Results are most dramatic on dryland.  Chiffon is taller than Andrew or Sadash and has plump kernels.  It looks to have a good future for ethanol or silage in addition to it's milling potential.  More about AAC Chiffon soft wheat.

 


NORTHERN RED & GENERAL PURPOSE WHEAT

Pasteur - Extremely high yielding general purpose feed wheat.

This is a variety out of Holland with a yield like softwheat - much higher than hard red spring wheats.  Our Pasteur fields have had beautiful colour, and a nice plump seed. 

We were very impressed with the yield but it did have lower protein than a hard red spring wheat would have. This variety is used for milling in Europe and is being tested for milling here but right now it is registered as a General Purpose variety and is not broadly accepted as a milling wheat.   More information on Pasteur.

 

AC® LillianSawfly resistant, with high protein and good disease resistance package.

This is an excellent yielding solid stem hard red spring wheat that is resistant to sawfly. It is not immune to sawfly, but the variety seems to stand up much better to sawfly than hollow stemmed spring wheats grown under similar conditions. It remains our best tool in the sawfly fight.
