Growers looking for a variety with a good disease package will find that Brandon boasts good resistance to FHB, leaf and stem rust resistance as well as stripe rust resistance. With strong short straw and a larger seed size, AAC Brandon is a solid choice for most growers.

AAC Brandon is a good replacement for Carberry which is the most seeded spring wheat variety in Manitoba. So –  if you grow Carberry and like it, you should try Brandon.

Seed Plant Expansion

 

Lifting new leg into place

Lifting new leg into place

Court Seeds at Plumas is expanding to better serve customers

In July, Court Seeds expanded our seed processing plant with the addition of two new 6,000 bushel bins, a high efficiency 65 foot grain leg and a 13” auger for unloading trucks into the seed plant.

The added capacity will allow the fully automated seed plant to run continuously without interruption for greater efficiency during grain conditioning. This increased efficiency means larger volumes of grain can be handled more quickly and will reduce the time spent waiting to load and unload trucks.

These improvements will also allow us to accept larger loads for custom cleaning.

Additional photos of the Seed Plant can be found on the Seed Plant page.
