    “The launch of these four new varieties represent a new performance level option for soybean producers,” says Stephen Denys, Director of Market and Product Development with Maizex Seeds. “Developed through our proven soybean research and development program, all four meet the evolving needs of soybean producers in Manitoba and Saskatchewan across a maturity range from 000.6 RM (2175CHU) to 00.6 RM (2425 CHU).”

    Denys notes the Maizex-exclusive Elite varieties complement the full portfolio of Maizex grain, silage, and grazing corn hybrids sold by the Maizex network today, and he adds, “These varieties also complement the Elite soybean varieties currently sold by Brett-Young Seeds through their distribution channels.”

    Jeremy Visser, Soybean Product Development Manager with Maizex Seeds, points out that the new Elite offering combines outstanding yield potential with key agronomic traits for performance. He says, “These varieties have been developed and have been tested locally to meet the needs of Prairie soybean producers in areas including harvestability and disease tolerance. Our confidence level in their performance is extremely high.”

    “The soybean research program under breeder Jerome Auclair has a proven track record for performance,” adds Visser. He points out examples like Akras and Amirani that have had great commercial success in Western Canada. “These new varieties carry on this tradition of next generation germplasm.”

    The new Elite varieties being marketed by certified Maizex Seeds dealers include:

    Variety Maturity (RM) Maturity (CHU) Key Attributes
    Buffalo R2 000.6 2175 Excellent standability with high yield potential for maturity.
