Seed Interactive is a collaborative effort between the Manitoba Seed Growers Association, Farm Business Communications, and Manitoba Agriculture, Food & Rural Initiatives.
Seed Interactive was created to improve Manitoba’s grain producers’ competitive ability by providing them an online decision tool to help make variety choices for their farms. Crop producers make choices about the varieties they grow based, in part, upon crop variety evaluation trials. Many such trials are conducted across the crop growing regions of Manitoba every year by the Manitoba Crop Variety Evaluation Team (MCVET).
Seed Interactive allows you to tailor your own output, taking into consideration your agronomic and management requirements. Use the variety characteristic report to familiarize yourself with overall yield performance, variety disease resistance and general agronomic attributes. Use the Yield Comparison Report to select your own check variety to compare directly to a new or commonly grown variety at locations of your choice. Or use the Multi-Year Yield Summary Report to focus on a group of varieties tested together within a specific time span at the locations of your choice.
Finally, search by location or geographic region for a seed grower near you that has the variety for sale that, after your careful research, would work best for your operation.
Crop types currently on Seed Interactive include spring wheat, winter wheat, barley, oats, flax, peas, soybeans, and sunflowers (oil and confectionary). In the future, crop types to be added include fall rye, fababeans, lentils, and field beans.
