The federal government has committed $3 million to the Flax Council of Canada for research in flax genetics and agronomics. Winnipeg MP Joyce Bateman announced the investment in Winnipeg this morning.”Creating new flax varieties and improving agronomics will increase producers’ profitability and allow processors and exporters to continue selling a high-quality product around the world,” said Bateman in a news release from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.
In this Pulse School, we talk to Sherrilyn Phelps, agronomy and seed program manager with Saskatchewan Pulse Growers. Phelps walks us through some of the factors involved in pulse grading, and some of the potential 2014 growing season concerns, including seed tag and high moisture/high temperature storage, and how growers can mitigate the risks of these, and other, quality concerns.
