Minister’s Message Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives is proud to continue its partnership with the Manitoba Seed Growers’ Association and the Manitoba Co-operator in order to bring Manitoba producers the 2010 edition of Seed Manitoba. This is a comprehensive and impartial  guide  to  agronomic performance of crops grown in the province – from cereals and oilseeds, to specialty crops such as industrial hemp, peas, edible beans, corn and soybeans. Forage crops, both annual and perennial, as well as silage corn, are also included. Seed Manitoba is an essential tool for producers, to assist you in making the crop choices that will help optimize rotations, take advantage of market conditions and maximize profits. If you have specific questions on the information here, or on any aspect of crop production, I invite you to contact your nearest Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives office. Seed Manitoba is made possible by the Manitoba Crop Variety Evaluation Team, which co-ordinated over 120 trials at 26 locations, in addition to Manitoba’s agri-business community, its crop diversification centres, its commodity groups and the many members of Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives. I thank you all for your contributions in providing Manitoba producers with this very valuable business tool.

President’s Message The 2009 growing season had serious  issues,  and  just  when we were all having déjà vu from 2004, September came with ideal conditions to bring in, on average, a good crop. As a rule throughout Manitoba,  seed  supplies  are adequate,  however  be  sure  to book your orders early to avoid any disappointment. Market demands are resulting in new varieties that may or may not work with your farm operation and producers are now charged with the extra “due diligence” of knowing the status of each variety as far as registration and, in the instance of wheat, declaring that variety when delivering their product. The information provided by this seed guide will help to calculate your risk and your local seed merchant has the background and knowledge to help you make those important variety decisions. Seed Manitoba contains information provided by comprehensive testing done throughout the province by the MCVET team, which is a partnership with Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives, Manitoba Seed Growers’ Association, as well as being supported by several industry groups. On behalf of the Manitoba Seed Growers’ Association, I wish to express our gratitude towards the industry partners who advertise in this publication. Your support for this effort is greatly appreciated. As producers look towards another year full of its own unique challenges and situations, the Manitoba Seed Guide will be there to aid in making some of those critical decisions. The board of the Manitoba Seed Growers’ Association wishes you good weather and a bountiful harvest in 2010.

Welcome to this year’s edition of Seed Manitoba,  compliments  of  Manitoba Agriculture, Food & Rural Initiatives, Manitoba Seed Growers Association and the Manitoba Co-operator. Seed Manitoba remains the source for unbiased and local variety information from various locations across Manitoba. It’s an excellent starting place for choosing a variety and for evaluating the new varieties coming to the marketplace.

Challenges from the start The 2009 growing season was a challenging one for many farmers in Manitoba. Excessive moisture delayed, and in some areas prevented, seeding. A late-spring frost in the first week of June affected some areas of the province.

Then as we moved into the summer, Manitoba saw cooler-than-normal temperatures. In September there was record heat followed by cool, wet conditions in October. With all the elements Mother Nature threw at Manitoba farmers, many did harvest record yields of cereals and canola. As in many farmers’ fields, many of the variety trials across the province had excellent yields. However, many of the full-season crops like soybeans, edible beans and sunflowers, along with later-seeded crops were delayed in development. I am happy to report that due to the hard work and long hours by many of our site contractors and the commodity editors, we were able to publish a number of full-season crop trials. The data that did not meet our deadlines

will be available in the Web Exclusive section at www.seedmb.ca. This year it will feature yield data from sunflowers and field beans, as well as seed quality information for soybeans, edible beans and sunflowers. This information will be released in weekly intervals between midDecember and the end of January.

Looking at yield data Use long-term, multi-site data to select the best, yield-stable varieties. Yield is based on the genetic potential and environmental conditions in which the crop is grown. Farmers should use long-term data over many locations when comparing variety performance. The more site years, especially if they are over more than one season, the more dependable the data will be.

Your best fields

As the technology of choice for more major seed companies, Genuity™ Roundup Ready® brands are quickly gaining ground. In fact, in the 2008 Yield Ready® field scale trials the newest

*Based on 38 common site comparisons in 2008 between our current Yield Ready checks 71-45 RR, 72-55 RR, and 45H28 and the Liberty Link checks 5440 and 5020, Yield Ready products performed equally as well (99.5%) as the Liberty Link checks.

Individual results may vary, and performance may vary from location to location and from year to year. This result may not be an indicator of results you may obtain as local growing, soil and weather conditions may vary. Growers should evaluate data from multiple locations and years whenever possible. Roundup Ready® crops contain genes that


The long-term yield and percentage protein appear in the Variety Description table and are a summation of all the data compared to the check variety accumulated from tests across Manitoba.

Reading Individual Site Data Always use caution when looking at single site year data. Varieties that excel under one set of environmental conditions may not perform as well under the next year’s conditions. For example, an oat variety that excels in a year without rust pressure may be the worst performer the year rust hits early. Farmers should select those varieties that perform well not only in their area but across experimental sites and years. This will increase the likelihood that given next year’s environment (which cannot be controlled) the variety selected will perform well. As you look through the data from individual site locations, be sure to refer to the grey “Check Yield” box for the CV% (coefficient of variation percentage), LSD% (least significant difference percentage) and the Sign Diff (significance difference) for each site. Sites with a low CV% are more likely to indicate true differences between varieties. If Sign Diff is marked as ‘yes,’ then the varieties in that site are truly

different. Refer then to the LSD% which represents the percentage that varieties must differ by before their yield potentials are truly different. If you find the Sign Diff is marked as ‘no,’ then the LSD% will be blank as all the varieties at that location statistically yielded the same. Although yield is generally the first factor considered in selecting a variety, farmers should also compare varieties for agronomic traits suited to their farm. The Variety Description tables provide various agronomic traits of current varieties, including relative maturity, lodging and disease resistance ratings.

New Features There are a few small changes to keep in mind as you read through Seed Manitoba 2010. Strongfield is the new check for durum wheat, replacing AC Avonlea. Within the barley table there are three new hulless varieties. AC Metcalfe is the new check for hulless barley replacing CDC Silky, and all of the long-term hulless barley provincial data has been recalculated to reflect this change. In the Special Crops section, Alyssa is the new industrial hemp check variety, replacing USO 14. And for peas, the check has changed from Eclipse to Cutlass.

The data that did not meet our deadlines will be available in the Web Exclusive section at www.seedmb.ca Questions? Any questions related to the data found in Seed Manitoba 2010 can be directed to the Commodity Editors: Pam de Rocquigny for cereals, industrial hemp and silage corn; Anastasia Kubinec for oilseed crops (canola, flax, sunflowers) along with lentils, peas and fababeans; Bruce Brolley for field beans and soybeans; and Glenn Friesen on forages. Thank you to Paula Halabicki, MCVET Co-ordinator, who supplied the majority of the 2009 yield data from MCVET for publication in Seed Manitoba. Thank you as well to the commodity organizations and those groups that support locally organized variety trials for donating data for inclusion into the guide. It is our hope you find the information in Seed Manitoba 2010 helpful as you make variety decisions in the coming months.

Keep Canola in the Game Do not plant de-registered canola varieties this spring! If you do, you could shut Canadian canola out of critical export markets! Last year Canadian exports amounted to over $3.4 billion. De-registered canola varieties can be detected at very low levels and will result in rejected shipments and increased monitoring. Many grain companies are no longer accepting delivery of these de-registered varieties. If you have canola seed of these de-registered varieties, please contact your grain company before you deliver.

Plant. Protect. Preserve. New midge tolerant wheat website offers everything you need to know to plant, protect and preserve. WGRF release

T

The Midge Tolerant Wheat Stewardship Team recently launched www.midgetolerantwheat. ca to be a comprehensive guide to this new technology. “The site is a great resource for farmers, seed growers and industry to learn more about the benefits, new varieties and stewardship program to help preserve this valuable trait for the future,” says Mike Espeseth,  communications  manager  for the Western Grains Research Foundation (WGRF). The WGRF is one of the members of the Midge Tolerant Wheat Stewardship Team, a broad industry coalition representing plant breeders, government, seed growers, seed distributors and producer groups. The team is committed to maintaining the viability of midge -olerant wheat by educating Western Canadian wheat producers on the importance of proper stewardship of the technology. It took more than 15 years and a huge financial investment for researchers to move this single gene for midge tolerance, Sm1, into spring wheat varieties. “Farmers helped fund the research with their checkoff dollars,” says Espeseth, noting that the varieties were developed by AAFC wheat breeders in Winnipeg and Swift Current using funds from AAFC, the WGRF checkoff program and variety distributors. Tolerance based on a single gene can become ineffective over a relatively short time as insect populations change unless a proper refuge is maintained. Within the natural midge population, a small number of midge (referred to as virulent midge) carry a mutation allowing them to attack midge-tolerant wheat varieties and survive. Therefore, an interspersed refuge system, a blend of a midge-tolerant variety with a susceptible variety, is required. As shown in the illustration below, this prevents the build up of virulent midge and can extend the life of midge tolerance from as little as 10 years to 90 years or longer. Three new midge-tolerant wheat varieties will be commercially available starting in the spring of 2010 – AC Unity VB from SeCan, AC SEED MANITOBA – 2010

WITHOUT AN INTERSPERSED REFUGE SYSTEM, MIDGE TOLERANCE COULD BREAK DOWN WITHIN 10 YEARS.

If midge tolerant wheat is grown in a pure stand, only the small number of naturally occurring virulent (resistant) midge survive.

The virulent midge would mate only with other virulent midge.

A large virulent population quickly builds and feeds on tolerant varieties.

AN INTERSPERSED REFUGE SYSTEM COULD EXTEND THE LIFE OF MIDGE TOLERANCE TO 90 YEARS OR LONGER.

Non-virulent midge survive on the 10% susceptible plants interspersed throughout the wheat field.

The non-virulent midge would inter-mate with virulent midge.

Virulent Midge Tolerant Wheat

Goodeve VB from Alliance Seed Corporation and an extra strong variety, AC Glencross VB, from Faurschou Farms. All varieties will be sold as a varietal blend (VB) which contains 90 per cent midge-tolerant variety and 10 per cent midge-susceptible variety (refuge). Farmers interested in planting a midgetolerant wheat variety will  be  required  to sign a Midge Tolerant Wheat  Stewardship Agreement.  This agreement  states that farm-saved seed must be limited to one generation past Certified seed. This limitation is critical to ensure that the refuge remains at the desired level of 10 per cent of the plant population, as the refuge in farm-

The progeny of this cross would be non-virulent. This presents a build up of a large virulent midge population.

Non-virulent Midge Susceptible Wheat

saved seed may change substantially over multiple generations. For example, under an extremely heavy midge infestation, the susceptible refuge variety could sustain up to 50 per cent yield loss. “Understanding the  science  behind how the interspersed refuge system works is very important to the entire  industry,”Nsays Espeseth.  “With  this knowledge, it is clear that  the  stewardship agreement is a simple, effective way to help preserve this exciting technology for decades to come.” Visit www.midgetolerantwheat.ca to learn more about the benefits of this new technology and how to preserve it for the future.

Variety Description Key

C

A grey “CHECK CHARACTERISTICS” box has been placed at the bottom of each table to display the long term yield, # of site years, % protein and any other check attributes.

E

Except for the long term average yield and protein data, variety description information was obtained from the Co-operative Registration Trials.

E

Protein data is from MCVET plots harvested from 2002 to 2009. Actual protein will depend on seasonal growing conditions and fertility levels. “Resistance to” ratings: VG = Very Good; G = Good; F = Fair; P = Poor; VP = Very Poor; n/a = not available

R

A L

C

Site Years Tested is the cumulative number of locations over the years that a variety has been tested against the check. The more site years the more dependable the data.

R

π Indicates a variety that is protected by Plant Breeders Rights or a variety where protection has been applied for but not yet granted at time of printing.

P

Key to 2009 Yield and Protein Tables Yields derived over 2 or more growing seasons are the best indicator of variety performance. For new varieties, “2009 Average Yield” over all sites is more reliable than data from a single location. Use single site year data with caution. Data collected from Portage is not presented as a site but data is included in the 2009 Average Yield and the long term yield. CV% = Coefficient of Variation. A measure of random variation in a trial. A low CV is desirable. LSD% = Least Significant Difference. Varieties must differ by the LSD% to be considered significantly different from one another. Sign Diff = Significant Difference. Indicates if a real difference exists between varieties at an individual site.

1  Values in brackets indicate row and type: 2 = two-row; 6 = six-row; B = blue aleurone; W = white aleurone (all others yellow); F = fodder. 2  In recent years, netted net blotch (NNB) has predominated over spotted net blotch in Manitoba; thus varieties will likely perform as per the NNB reactions.” 3 Reactions given for old races of stem rust. All cultivars are susceptible to new race QCCJ, however to date this has not caused widespread damage. Early seeding will generally reduce the likelihood of severe infection. 4 Fusarium head blight (FHB) infection is highly influenced by environment and heading date. Under high levels of the disease all varieties will sustain damage. Hulless barley typically has reduced levels of DON when compared to regular barley with similar levels of disease.

2010-2011 Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre Recommendations

E

These recommendations are based on the varieties expected to be selected by grain and malting companies for both domestic and export markets from the 2010 harvest. Seeding decisions should be based on agronomic considerations and feedback from your grain company representative, local elevator operators and malting companies. This list is published on behalf of the members of the CMBTC, and other companies that have provided their input. Varieties not listed are not recommended. The varieties are listed in descending order to the amount selected in 2009.

Please talk to local malting company selector in regards to demand for CDC Battleford and Robust. Canadian registration is still pending for BT980 and BT984. Domestic as used in this publication, means barley selected for domestic processing into malt to supply domestic brewers as well as for malt destined for export. Export is that malting barley designated for markets outside of Canada including the U.S., shipped as unmalted grain. The CMBTC recommends the use of CERTIFIED seed to ensure varietal purity and to increase opportunity for selection. The following companies have PEDIGREED seed distribution rights for those varieties that are footnoted: 1-Viterra;  2- BARI-Canada;  3 FP Genetics;  4 - SeCan; 5 - CANTERRA SEEDS

Comments: Forage yields of some varieties are listed in the Forage Crops section. All oat varieties recommended for Manitoba are acceptable for milling. The race horse industry prefers white-hulled varieties. HiFiπ is exceptionally high in beta-glucan fibre and is available for contract identity preserved production. Crown rust races capable of attacking varieties with the Pc68 gene are now prevalent in Manitoba, this has resulted in varieties like AC Assiniboiaπ, Furlongπ, Pinnacleπ and others being redefined as Very Poor (VP) for Crown Rust resistance. Early seeding may reduce the likelihood of severe infection.

Comments: Hulless oats were last tested in 2008. GEHLπ is the first bald hulless oat variety as it does not have surface-borne hairs (trichomes). GEHLπ also has improved hulless expression.

A

The yield of hulless oats is less than that of common oats in which the hull is part of the yield. Hulless oats should be stored at <12% moisture.

L

Crown rust races capable of attacking varieties with the Pc68 gene are now prevalent in Manitoba, this has resulted in some varieties being redefined as Very Poor (VP) for Crown Rust resistance. Early seeding may reduce the likelihood of severe infection.

Hulless oats are a specialty product for which a market should be ensured prior to planting.

1 All varieties are susceptible to new races NA67 and NA76 and these races caused moderate damage to crops in the Red River Valley in 2001 and 2002. Early seeding will generally reduce the likelihood of severe infection. 2  BYD = Barley Yellow Dwarf - a viral disease carried and spread by aphids - early seeding will generally reduce the likelihood of severe infection.

Comments: Fieldstar VBπ, Goodeve VBπ, Unity VBπ and Glencross VB are the first wheat midge tolerant varieties. They contain the same Sm1 gene for tolerance. To manage against the build-up of midge resistance to the gene, an interpersed refuge will be used commercially. This refuge will be achieved through planting a blend of 90% tolerant variety and 10% of a susceptible variety that will act as the refuge. For example Unity VB was tested as varietal blend that was composed of 90% Unity (tolerant variety) and 10% Waskada (refuge variety). These varieties are not immune to wheat midge and can suffer some midge damage when high midge infestation levels occur. The Canadian Grains Commission advises that the following wheat varieties belonging to the Canada Prairie Spring White (CPSW) class will be deregistered effective April 28, 2011: Snowhite 475 and Snowhite 476.

1  T = Tall; MT = Medium Tall; M = Medium; SD = Semi-dwarf. 2  VL = Very Large; L = Large; ML = Medium Large; M = Medium. 3  Leaf Spot rating is a combination of resistance to tan spot, spot blotch and septoria leaf disease complex. 4 Guidelines for stripe rust resistance were added in 2007. Stripe rust was detected annually in Manitoba since 2000 but has not yet caused serious yield losses. 5 Fusarium head blight (FHB) infection is highly influenced by environment and heading date. Under high levels of the disease all varieties will sustain damage.

McClintockπ has improved resistance to leaf spot diseases. Radiantπ is the first variety with wheat curl mite resistance, which offers protection against the spread of wheat streak mosaic virus. Data is being collected for stripe rust reaction. Although it is premature to provide a rating for winter wheat varieties, McClintockπ and Radiantπ carry genes that confer resistantance to many of the prevalent races. CDC Buteo, McClintockπ and Radiantπ are eligible varieties for the CWB’s 2009-10 Canada Western Red Winter Select wheat contracting program.

1 Earlier flowering of winter wheat relative to spring wheat, may allow winter wheat to escape infection. 2 All registered varieites have similar (good) winter hardiness if seeded into standing stubble where good snow cover can be assured. For the newer varieties of CDC Ptarmigan, Accipiter, Peregrine and DH99W181*45, there is limited information currently available. As these varieties are grown on more acres, a better understanding of relative winter hardiness will follow.

SEED MANITOBA – 2010


TRITICALE Comments:

C

Triticale was last tested in 2000. Triticale is used in Canada both as a food and livestock feed. Seed yield is generally higher than Glenlea wheat but protein content is slightly lower. The newer available varieties, although susceptible, have reduced incidence of ergot compared to nonregistered varieties and rye. Forage yields of some varieties are listed in the Forage Crops section.

Hate wheat midge? Hate spraying?

You’ll love this. Grow a new midge tolerant wheat variety next spring and protect your yields and grade. Midge tolerant wheat is grown with an interspersed refuge system – a varietal blend of susceptible wheat and tolerant wheat that prevents a build up of resistant midge. With proper stewardship, this interspersed refuge can prevent an estimated $36 per acre loss from midge damage, and can extend the life of this new technology to 90 years or longer. What’s not to love about that?

Or visit www.midgetolerantwheat.ca to learn more.

Variety Description Key

O

A “CHECK CHARACTERISTICS” box has been placed at the bottom of each table to display the long term yield, # of site years, % protein and any other check attributes.

I

Except for the long term average yield and protein data, variety description information was obtained from the Co-operative Registration Trials.

S

“Resistance to” ratings: VG = Very Good; G = Good; F = Fair; P = Poor; VP = Very Poor; n/a = not available Site Years Tested is the cumulative number of locations over the years that a variety has been tested against the check. The more site years the more dependable the data. π Indicates a variety that is protected by Plant Breeder’s Rights or a variety where protection has been applied for but not yet granted at time of printing. TKW (Thousand Kernel Weight) is the weight in grams of 1000 seeds.

Key to 2009 Yield and Protein Tables Yields derived over 2 or more growing seasons are the best indicator of variety performance. For new varieties, “2009 Average Yield” over all sites is more reliable than data from a single location. Use single site year data with caution. CV% = Coefficient of Variation. A measure of random variation in a trial. A low CV is desirable. LSD% = Least Significant Difference. Varieties must differ by the LSD% to be considered significantly different from one another. Sign Diff = Significant Difference. Indicates if a real difference exists between varieties at an individual site.

Soybean Comments For specific notes regarding the soybean tables, refer to the SOYBEAN COMMENTS at the top of page 50.

Blackleg rating for canola. The rating represents a variety’s blackleg tolerance relative to the highly susceptible variety Westar. Varieties with a resistant (R) or moderately resistant (MR) rating for blackleg have shown the greatest ability to suppress blackleg incidence and severity, but can still develop some lesions or cankers. Newer pathogroups of blackleg (PG3, PG4 and PGT) have been confirmed and not all varieties will have resistance. As a result, individual field performance may vary from performance in the registration trials. In fields where newer blackleg pathogroups have been confirmed, where fall field scouting revealed higher than expected levels of blackleg or where there has been history of a tight rotation with canola, it may be necessary to lengthen rotation to achieve sufficient blackleg control.

better

High yielding canola hybrids – year after year In 2008, producers chose DEKALB® 71-45 RR, a market leader renowned for consistent, high-yielding performance. In 2009, we launched our innovative 72 series which show increased yields of 4.5% over 71-45 RR.1 In 2010, initial yields of DEKALB brand 73 series show gains of 105-109% over 71-45 RR.2 The proof is easy to see. Through Monsanto’s increased investment in canola research and development, DEKALB brand hybrids consistently deliver impressive results. Every year, yields just keep getting better.

SOYBEAN COMMENTS O I L S E E D

NOTES FOR ALL SOYBEAN TABLES Maturity Notes: always use more than 1 criteria to evaluate maturity 1 Soybean varieties have been organized into 3 maturity zones - short, mid and long season areas. Although there are no variety restrictions, the short season grouping is meant to be a starting point for new growers in the outer production areas. The long season group is targeted for the southern Manitoba generally south of highway 23, with the mid season grouping making up the bulk of the production area in between the short and long season area. 2 Company Crop Heat Unit ratings are assigned to assist growers select varieties suitable for their area. Unfortunately Company Heat Unit ratings do not always reflect the actual maturity in Manitoba. Growers should never rely on just 1 criteria for judging maturity. Experimental lines are not assigned a HU rating until they become registered. 3 Relative days to maturity (dtm) is the number of days from seeding to plant maturity (95% of the pods on the plant are mature with seeds rattling in the pods when plant is shaken) and is expressed as + or - days from the check. For 2009, 2008 and 2007 the dtm have been calculated from 4 common sites (Portage, Homewood, St Adolphe, Morris) only. Because of this change, dtm numbers for 2009 and 2008 seasons may be slightly different than was published in previous Seed Guides which were based on all sites a variety was tested at. Actual days to maturity for the check is found in the grey Check Box at the bottom of the table.

General Notes:

C R O P S

1 Roundup Ready, Conventional and soybean varieties are evaluated separately from Roundup Ready type varieties, meaning direct comparison of varieties between different tables is not possible. All trials are solid seeded at 210,000 plants/acre. 2 Hilum colour can range from Yellow (Y), ImperfectYellow (IY), Grey (G), Brown (BR), Buff (BF) or Black (BL) and is solely a marketing issue. The hilum is the point on the soybean seed where it attaches to the pod. 3 Seed size is reported in seeds/lb, these numbers were determined by the companies when the varieties were entered into the trial. Soybean seed size can vary greatly between varieties and even from seed lot to seed lot of the same variety. Growers should use the seed size for their seed lot when calculating seeding rates. 4 Lodging is rated at harvest; 1=standing upright, 5= flat along the ground. A rating of 3 or more can promote white mold within the crop canopy. 5 Iron Deficiency Chlorosis (IDC) rating scores 1=green leaves, 2=yellowish leaves, 3=green veins with yellow leaves, 4=brown dead tissue between green veins, 5=severe chlorosis and a stunted growing point. Ratings were taken from 4 sites prone to iron chlorosis over the last 2 years. IDC tolerant varieties are varieties with lower IDC Scores and perform better on soils prone to iron deficiency chlorosis. 6 Iron Deficiency Chlorosis (IDC) grouping is used because varieties will have different visual rating scores from year to year. Numerical ratings which are close but are in different groupings will show similar symptoms. Both numerical and groupings should be considered together when judging IDC. Tolerant=leaves stayed green, Semi Tolerant=leaves when yellow then turned green, Susceptible= leaves went chlorotic and had dead patches on their leaves and where often stunted. 7  Soybeans are not eligible for MASC Production Insurance in all parts of the province - consult your local agent for more details.

Western Manitoba Soybean Adaptation Trial Comments: The Adaptation Soybean variety trial was tested and the data was donated by Manitoba Pulse Growers Association. Soybeans do not qualify for MASC Production Insurance at Roblin or Hamiota.

Variety Description Key

S

A “CHECK CHARACTERISTICS” box has been placed at the bottom of each table to display the long term yield, # of site years, % protein and any other check attributes.

P

Except for the long term average yield and protein data, variety description information was obtained from the Co-operative Registration Trials.

C

“Resistance to” ratings: VG = Very Good; G = Good; F = Fair; P = Poor; VP = Very Poor; n/a = not available

E

I A

Site Years Tested is the cumulative number of locations over the years that a variety has been tested against the check. The more site years the more dependable the data.

L

π Indicates a variety that is protected by Plant Breeder’s Rights or a variety where protection has been applied for but not yet granted at time of printing.

C

TKW (Thousand Kernel Weight) is the weight in grams of 1000 seeds.

O

R

P Key to 2009 Yield and Seed Quality Tables Yields derived over 2 or more growing seasons are the best indicator of variety performance. For new varieties, “2009 Average Yield” over all sites is more reliable than data from a single location. Use single site year data with caution. CV% = Coefficient of Variation. A measure of random variation in a trial. A low CV is desirable. LSD% = Least Significant Difference. Varieties must differ by the LSD% to be considered significantly different from one another. Sign Diff = Significant Difference. Indicates if a real difference exists between varieties at an individual site.

FIELD BEANS — Western Manitoba Adaptation Trials (formerly called Narrow Row trials) Comments: There is no Narrow Row Field Bean data for 2009; the data presented is from trials conducted from 2003 to 2008. Long term yield data and days to maturity are from Manitoba Pulse Growers Association Trials grown in 10 to 12 inch row spacing. More detailed measurements from the trials are available to MPGA members and will be distributed in the December Special Edition of the Pulse Beat magazine. Days to maturity is critical. Do not select a variety that will not mature in time, under normal growing conditions. Early fall frost severely affects yield and quality. Consult your local MASC agent for information on insurability of edible beans in your area.

1 Long term Average Yield is the best indicator of variety performance. Use single site-year data with caution. 2 Due to different weather conditions each year, the actual number of days it takes a variety to fully mature varies from year to year. Choosing a variety that needs a longer growing season than your farm has, increases your risk of frost damage and lower returns.

Ď&#x20AC; Indicates a variety that is protected by Plant Breederâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rights or a variety where protection has been applied for but not yet granted at time of printing.

E

* Seed sources can be found at the back of the forage section.

C

Key to 2009 Yield or Quality Tables Numbers in brackets indicate site years. Site Years Tested is the number of locations added up over the years that a variety has been tested in trials against the check. The more site years the more dependable the data. Use data with caution when there are fewer than 3 site years for annual crops and 9 site years for perennial crops. Annual forage data with CV's higher than 15% are not printed. CV % = Coefficient of Variation. A measure of random variation in a trial. A small % CV is desirable. LSD % = Least Significant Difference. Varieties must differ by this percentage to be considered significantly different from one another.

Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives Variety Guide FORAGE CULTIVAR EVALUATION The Manitoba Forage Council operates the Forage Cultivar Evaluation Program. Management of the program is through an industry team approach. Producers, seed trade, extension and researchers are involved in the forage evaluation management committee. The perennial forage cultivar evaluation is coordinated with similar programs in Saskatchewan and Alberta, allowing for sharing of test data. The annual forage testing is coordinated with other testing facilities and producer organizations. The testing sites

are Arborg, Melita, Rosebank (formerly Neepawa), Roblin and St. Pierre Jolys (formerly Steinbach). Cooperation and support from program partners have allowed the efficient operation of testing in 2009. The objective of the evaluation program is to provide information to Manitoba’s forage producers and industry partners on the performance of annual and perennial forage cultivars under Manitoba conditions. The program measures dry matter yields of perennials under a three-cut system over three production years and annuals under a one-cut system

over 3 years. The program has also developed test procedures to evaluate persistence, winter-hardiness and grazing tolerance. The Manitoba Forage Council publishes results from the forage evaluation trials with detailed information on forage production. These reports are available from Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives (MAFRI) offices, MAFRI Forage specialists, Rangeland and Pasture specialists, and the Manitoba Forage Council.

Support for Forage Cultivar Evaluation was obtained from various sectors of the agricultural industry. In appreciation of their partnership in this program, the following sponsors are acknowledged: Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural   Initiatives Agricultural Sustainability Initiative Green Cover Program – Agriculture and   Agri-Food Canada Viterra

(continued) ALFALFA

ALFALFA WINTER HARDINESS Zone 1

This Plant Hardiness Zones (2000) map outlines the different zones within Manitoba where various types of plants {alfalfa} will likely survive the winter. It is based on 30-year average climatic conditions of each area (min. and max. temperatures, frost-free period, summer and January rainfall, snow cover, wind speed, elevation). Hardiness Zone ratings are to be used only as guideline when selecting varieties as many factors influence overwintering ability (such as snow cover, timing of cold weather, location of plants in the landscape, relative health of plants as they enter winter). Always use optimum management techniques to ensure winter survival when choosing a variety with a slightly poorer overwintering rating.

CORN HEAT UNIT ACCUMULATION Corn heat units (CHU) are closely related to corn development. CHU is better than calendar days or growing degree days because CHUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only accumulate when night temperatures are above 4.4C and day temperatures above 10C, and maximum growth occurs at 30C and decreases with higher temperatures. The map above indicates 30-year average accumulation of CHU in varying regions in the province.

Results from St.Pierre were not available at press time. The data presented is for one year only. Use with caution. All hybrids were evaluated at a plant population of 28,000 plants per acre. Plots are seeded at a higher rate and thinned to achieve the target population. Elm Creek was seeded May 21. Elm Creek was harvested October 5. Yields are corrected to 65% moisture content. The Manitoba Corn Committee publishes the annual results along with more detailed lab analysis in their brochure. The brochure is available at the Manitoba Corn Growers Association office (204-745-6661) and at local Manitoba Agriculture, Food & Rural Initiative offices.

1 Each company assigns a corn heat unit (CHU) rating to each of their hybrids. The CHU rating is a measure of relative maturity and is one criteria for choosing a hybrid which is suitable for your growing region. 2 Traits: BT, HX1, CB, YGCB - resistance to European corn borer; RR, RR2 - Roundup herbicide tolerant; GT - glyphosate herbicide tolerant; LL - Liberty herbicide tolerant; VT3 - resistance to European corn borer, Roundup herbicide tolerant and resistance to rootworm. 3  Moisture content at harvest. 4  TDN, ADF & NDF were measured on a composite sample for each hybrid. 5 Milk per Acre was calculated using Milk 2006, a model developed by the University of Wisconsin Extension Service. A combination of actual feed test values (DM, CP, NDF, starch) and book values (NDFd, ash, fat) was used. 6  Beef per acre was calculated on the assumption that one pound of beef is produced for every six pounds of TDN.

Reel benefits.

Canola you can straight-cut.

While you were busy swathing, hundreds of growers just like you were straight-cutting their canola. With XCEED, growers now have

the option of straight-cutting their canola due to greater pod shatter resistance. And unlike conventional canola, XCEED is significantly more tolerant to heat and drought conditions, so you can grow canola where you never could before. To find out how you can reap the benefits of XCEED canola, visit xceed.viterra.ca. ADVICE

1 Quality is highly dependent on plant maturity at harvest. For optimium quality: harvest barley at early-mid dough stage; oats & triticale at milk to early dough stage. 2 Resistance to leaf diseases can improve forage quality and yield: (VG) Very Good; (G) Good; (F) Fair; (P) Poor; (VP) Very Poor; n/a = not available. See cereal & special crop section in of this guide for more detail of crop tolerances. 3  The number following the variety name indicates the number of rows on the seed head. The letters indicate forage variety (F) or white aleurone (W). 4  All varieties are suceptible to new races NA67 and NA76. These races caused moderate damage to crops in the Red Valley in 2001 & 2002.

First letter is prefered use. 3  Type: F-Flemish type, purple flowered & early-growing. V-Variegated type, derived from flemish & falcata type crosses. F,V-Mixed type, exhibits both characteristics. 4 FD: indicates the varieties characteristic to go dormant in fall. FD 9 will grow vigirously in fall; FD 2 will have little fall growth evident. Varieties with ratings of 1 - 4 are considered adequately winter hardy for Manitoba conditions while those of 5 or higher are not well adapted. Varieties with higher ratings should be managed carefully. 5 WH: ability of plants to survive winter and be productive next year. Ratings utilize North American approved Winter Hardiness Zone ratings. Varieties are compared against known check varieties (1=most hardy, 5=least hardy). Score of 1 indicates adaptation to all zones, score of 2 indicates adaptability in zones 2 and above, score of 3 indicates adaptability in 3 and above. (See Winter Hardiness Zone map in front of forage section). Scores are from the Manitoba Forage Council and 3rd party northern US tests using a minimum of 4 sites years of data over 2 winters. Grazing Tolerance: University of Manitoba study (1996 - 1999) determined winterhardiness was more influential to grazing tolerance than studies showing stand persistence under grazing. 6 Maturity rating indicates relative comparison of first flowering dates. Early varieties will bloom before late varieties, may provide more cuts/year, but are less hardy. 7 Disease Resistance:(HR) higly resistant; (R) resistance; (MR) moderatley resistant; (S) no resistance. Bacterial Wilt (BW), Verticillium Wilt (VW) Phytophythora Root Rot (PRR). 8  Multifoliate varieties have genetic potential to produce 4 or more leaflets per leaf. This trait is influenced by environmental conditions.

Makes my heart beat a little faster.

Every year around this time I get excited. I know my grower planted InVigor® hybrids and I can hardly wait to experience the incredible yield again. My expectations are high. With InVigor’s superior genetics we always see extraordinary results. There’s a lot to look forward to. Contact your local retailer to secure your supply today so you too can feel the excitement of InVigor yields at harvest.

Nothing outperforms.

Bob Ruskâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farming career had been like a roller coaster.

Growers have their share of ups and downs. Especially during seeding season. So when Bob Rusk from Lafleche, Saskatchewan looked out over his rolling hills and heavy gumbo soil wanting to ensure the right seeding depth for his wheat and small seeded crops, he chose the drill famous for its extreme precision. The Morris Contour Drill features an independent contour opener with parallel linkage for ultraprecise seed and fertilizer placement. Each opener moves independently of the frame, and of each other, to closely follow every contour of your land. To learn how the Morris Contour Drill can work for you, visit our website or your nearest dealer.
