Alberta Wheat Commission Wheat Seeding Rate Trial

AWC is funding another trial to evaluate the yield and quality (protein) of 4 varieties of wheat which will be seeded at different seeding rates in the Peace Region. This project builds up on the previous similar projects conducted in previous years (2019-2021) in the region with only two varieties (AAC Brandon and AAC Connery) and is including two more varieties (AAC Viewfield and AAC Redberry). AAC Viewfield is slightly higher yielding than AAC Brandon while Redberry is an early maturing variety (three days earlier than AAC Brandon). MARA is partnering with NPARA and SARDA to evaluate this trial at three sites across the Peace region.
