This year’s Minnesota Certified Seed Guide is now available! Minnesota Farm Guide published the 2022 edition earlier this month. 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 releases: three new conventional soybean varieties as well as a first-ever winter barley variety, MN-Equinox. Another article, written by Andrea Johnson, profiles MCIA Foundation Seed Manager Roger Wippler, who, for three decades, has led MCIA’s successful efforts to promote public seed varieties, working collaboratively with university breeders, certified seed producers, and farmers.
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.
