Video: Why Limagrain Field Seeds is a Strong Partner for SPG on Pulse Breeding in Saskatchewan
July 18, 2022
Both SPG and Limagrain Field Seeds are farmer-led with farmer-based Boards of Directors. This is an important pillar to this new collaboration, which was developed around shared values to support and foster profitable growth and opportunities for Saskatchewan farmers.
The new Limagrain Field Seeds breeding, and research program will be based in Saskatoon, where a dedicated pulse breeding team will be created, bringing new expertise in breeding, pathology, molecular genetics, and field trial evaluation to the region. This technology driven program will lead to higher performing varieties being made available to producers more quickly by deploying all available technology to both shorten the breeding cycle and accelerate seed production.
