Leading Genetics in Corn

Elite’s corn evaluation program has access to multiple trait platforms and again is focused on early-maturing hybrids. The selection of grain corn hybrids targets yield, drydown, standability and disease resistance. In their silage and grazing line-up, hybrids are selected for high tonnage, high energy and production per acre.

About Elite

Elite is a Canadian seed company that prides itself on delivering varieties tailored to the specific needs of farmers across Canada.

Elite’s unwavering commitment to early-maturing markets is demonstrated through continued investments in crop production research, plant breeding and crop variety development. Elite’s corn hybrids and early maturity soybeans are developed and evaluated at the Elite Research Farm in Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec, as well as satellite testing locations in Western Canada. Elite has a full soybean breeding program with their own genetic material and is dedicated to developing soybeans with maturities to satisfy growers in all Canadian regions. Proof of this comes with a major expansion into Manitoba, which allows for additional private testing sites, more crosses directed toward early adaptation, additional disease screening and more nursery selection plots. Elite’s inclusion of pod height in their selecting process has led to varieties with superior harvestability for growers. When farmers choose Elite, they are choosing cutting-edge products and technology along with industry-leading expertise.

Distinct by Design: Tailoring Soybeans for Western Canada

Posted: Nov 12, 2020

Growing seasons on the Canadian Prairies are generally shorter than those in other soybean growing regions like Eastern Canada and the US, which means many Western Canadian growers are looking for a soybean variety that not only delivers the best in agronomic performance and yield, but also matures earlier.

Distinct by Design: The Case for Soybeans

Posted: Oct 22, 2020

Dave Swanton is a grower just outside of Dauphin, Manitoba. He grows red spring wheat, canola and perennial ryegrass on his 3,000-acre farm. He also grows soybeans, which, to some growers in Western Canada, is an unpopular decision. Some farmers have grown wary of growing soybeans again due to the low yields they produced from 2017-2019, as a result of the drier growing seasons in Western Canada during that time. Swanton, however, feels differently about this legume crop. One of the many reasons he likes soybeans, he says, is because he believes they are easy to grow. We dug deeper with Swanton to find out why, even though soybean acres have declined in the past few years, farmers should give soybeans a second chance.

Distinct by Design: Making a Difference in Clubroot Research

Posted: Oct 20, 2020

It was August 2003, and Dr. Stephen Strelkov was beginning his career as a plant pathology professor at the University of Alberta, intending to specialize in Tan Spot disease on wheat, which had been the focus of his PhD and postdoctoral work. One month later, the first case of Clubroot in canola was reported in Alberta. That’s when Dr. Strelkov’s plans changed. He shifted to specializing in Clubroot research and helped create the Canadian Clubroot Differential set that has helped plant breeders across Western Canada develop next-generation canola traits for Clubroot resistance.
