30 Years Of The Seed Manitoba Guide

2022 marks the 30th anniversary of the Seed Manitoba Guide, which was first published in 1992.

Editor Anne Kirk says the format of the variety selection and growers source guide has remained fairly similar over the years, however the crop types have changed.

"Something new in the guide this year is forage trials," she explained. "Forage trials were conducted in the past but it's been a number of years since they were last done by the MCVET committee. This year we did an annual forage trial at four locations. We were looking at a variety of annual crops that farmers would cut for forage. Things like oats, barley, peas, millet."

Kirk says the data in the guide comes from MCVET trials and Manitoba crop organizations, adding there were 28 testing locations.

She notes the guide is a great unbiased resource for variety selection.
