Western Canadian Seed and Crop Inputs


Crop Inputs – A Reenergized Seed Focus

BrettYoung has been active in Western Canadian crop input markets since 1979. Like everything BrettYoung, it began with forage seeds – alfalfa and grasses. In the early 2000s, BrettYoung entered the canola seed market and initiated an R&D program that resulted in the launch of an innovative ag-biological growth promoter – BioBoost. The most recent additions are soybean and corn seed.

A renewed commitment and approach to the canola market was evident in 2010, with the launch of the top tier Genuity Roundup Ready varieties 6040 RR and 6020 RR, and the launch of the top yielding Clearfield variety 5525 CL. This was followed in 2011 with the launch of 6060RR – a top Genuity Roundup Ready variety that delivers leading results.

Our commitment to offering field-proven varieties in all our seed products continues to grow as we live and put into action the statement: It All Comes Down To Performance.
