Our Strategic Partner for Soybeans

The strategic partnership between BrettYoung and Elite brings premium soybean varieties specifically suited to Western Canadian growing conditions.

Elite is a Canadian seed brand that prides itself on delivering varieties tailored to the specific needs of farmers across Western Canada. Their unwavering commitment to early-maturing markets is demonstrated through continued investments in soybean production research, plant breeding and variety development. Elite early maturity soybeans are developed and evaluated at the Research Farm in Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec, and at testing locations across Western Canada.

Elite has a full soybean development program dedicated to delivering soybeans with a maturity and performance profile to satisfy growers in all Prairie soybean production areas. The expansion of Prairie acres has driven investment into crosses directed towards early zone adaptation, additional private testing, disease screening and more nursery selection plots. The inclusion of pod height in their  selection process is unique and has led to varieties with superior harvestability versus competing products.

When farmers choose Elite, they are choosing cutting-edge products and technology along with industry-leading expertise.
