What's New at BrettYoung

BrettYoung™ has launched two new canola hybrids. BY 6204TF, equipped with the TruFlex™ canola system with Roundup Ready® Technology, features top-end yield performance (102%*) and mid-maturity (+0.1 days*), along with the flexibility of the TruFlex Weed Control system. We’ve also expanded our Clearfield® canola portfolio with BY 5125CL, an earlier maturing (+0.4 days*) and higher-yielding (106%*) sister variety to our very popular 5545 CL variety. Both of these new varieties carry first-generation Clubroot resistance and feature DefendR®-rated Blackleg genetics, meaning you get industry-leading multi-genic Blackleg protection with a strong R rating. Peace of mind with the yield performance you come to expect with BrettYoung canola varieties.

Our Elite® soybean lineup continues to provide growers with a diverse range of products that are tailored to fit the specific needs of most farms, most notably being Amirani R2, which delivers excellent yield performance and ultra-early maturity (000.5 RM). Amirani R2 allows growers in all geographies to harvest earlier while maintaining excellent yield potential and is ideal for growers in ultra-early maturity zones looking for a high-performance variety.

2020 marks the launch of an exciting partnership for BrettYoung. We have united with Rizobacter, a world-leading agricultural microbiology company, to bring useful, new inoculant technologies to Western Canada. This includes Osmium™ Pea/Lentil and Osmium™ Chickpea, a line of liquid inoculants for pea, lentil and chickpea growers that features Osmo Protector Technology for a new level of performance in on-seed life and seed treatment compatibility. Signum®, a new liquid soybean inoculant, includes the same benefits plus Bio-Inducer Technology to promote earlier nodulation and increased yield potential. Speak with your BrettYoung representative to learn more about why these technologies should be included in your 2021 pulse and soybean seeding plans.

Lastly, we’re proud to announce BrettYoung has earned the designation as one of “Canada’s Best Managed Companies” designation for the third consecutive year. The award continues to validate all the hard work the entire BrettYoung team does to serve the needs of our amazing customers. It also acknowledges the world-class suppliers who are an integral part of the value we deliver to the field. We especially thank all our customers who choose to do business with BrettYoung as part of your work in feeding the world.

Spring Inoculant Handling Reminder

Posted: May 05, 2021

Spring can be a hectic time where plans change by the minute.  Make sure to take care of your inoculants by storing them where they are away from direct sunlight and freezing temperatures, and remember to keep inoculated seed out of direct sunlight by tarping your trucks or parking them out of the sun.

Do You Know the Best Seeding Rate for Your Forage Stand?

Posted: Apr 23, 2021

Benefits to Seeding at a Proper Rate

Forage seed varies by size and weight, just like any other seed does as you move between different crop type and species. And like any other crop, there are benefits to making sure that you are planting the right amount of seeds per square foot in the spring. Choosing the right rate can mean less competition from weeds and better yield, or even less disease and better persistence.

How Will a Drier Spring Impact Your Canola Seed Emergence?

Posted: Apr 23, 2021

Consider Seeding Depth, Soil Moisture and Soil Temperature 

Across the Canadian Prairies, soil moisture reserves are much lower than normal, thanks to a drier autumn and less snowfall than usual this past winter.

You may be tempted to seed deeper to find moisture, especially if you’re seeding into ground that’s extremely dry. But as agronomists like Justine Cornelsen will tell you, if you’re betting on this high risk/reward strategy to pay off with a bumper crop this season, the odds are stacked against you.
