The 2019 Pulse and Soybean Variety Guide is now available.
Manitoba Pulse and Soybean Growers (MPSG) Production Specialist Cassandra Tkachuk was asked if we're seeing a change in varieties grown in Manitoba.
"It really depends on what the companies feel are the most important varieties to submit," she said. "Over the past few years, with the rise in soybean acres, we have seen an influx of more shorter season varieties and I would say that was less of the case this year. We've seen that for the past few years. More recently would be the Xtend varieties, so the herbicide tolerant soybean trial was largely dominated by Xtend varieties. I believe we had one Enlist variety this year and we will be seeing more Enlist varieties next year."
