This year’s Minnesota Certified Seed Guide is now available! Minnesota Farm Guide published the 2023 edition earlier this winter. This annual publication is a collaborative effort of MCIA and the Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station (MAES). It lists seed producers, includes MAES crop trial results, and features news and information relevant to the seed industry.
Take the opportunity to learn about the University of Minnesota’s new, high-yielding wheat release, MN-Rothsay. Also, Andrea Johnson contributes an article about the past and hopeful future of the barley industry in the Upper Midwest as the University of Minnesota’s breeding program, under the leadership of Kevin Smith, Ph.D., develops new varieties intended for food and beverage applications as well as animal feed.
A digital version of the Minnesota Certified Seed Guide can be found here. If you’d like a printed copy, please request one from your MCIA field supervisor or from the MCIA office.
