Pride Corn, Soybeans Available Only Through Canterra Retailer Network8 months ago -
Farmers in Western Canada will now have access to the Pride Seeds portfolio of hybrid corn, soybean seeds and agronomic resources only through the Canterra Seeds retailer network in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta.
As research brings earlier-maturing seed corn hybrids and soybean varieties onto the market, Western Canadian farmers have huge opportunities for acreage growth in these crops to boost their profitability and expand crop rotations. To effectively take advantage of these opportunities, Canterra Seeds and Pride Seeds both recognize how crucial it is for farmers to have access to seed with a demonstrated record of success growing under Prairie conditions, the companies said in a statement.
“The continued growth of corn and soybeans in Western Canada, and the demand from our customers for the best genetics and performance to fuel that growth, is the reason Canterra Seeds originally partnered with Pride Seeds three years ago,” says Canterra CEO Dave Hansen. “I believe this new relationship shows that we have proven ourselves to each other, and our customers.”
